Anyone else getting annoyed at the amount of irrelevant notifications from LinkedIn? Good. Glad it’s not just me.
Until recently, I was constantly getting LinkedIn published post notifications on my phone from Linkedin. While I’m more than happy to connect with new people, this doesn’t mean I want to be signed up to follow their Linkedin publisher activity. That’s what the ‘follow’ button is for!!
The sad fact is that this LinkedIn feature has been hijacked by poor quality content publishers, spammers and people who just have too much time on their hands. This isn’t to say that there aren’t good publishers using this LinkedIn feature but they’re hard to find and I want to curate this content by choosing who to follow.
Follow the steps below on how to unsubscribe or unfollow from LinkedIn published posts:
- In the upper right of your screen, click the notifications button (flag icon)
- Find the person(s) and post(s) you want to unfollow or unsubscribe from
- When you hover on the notification, an ‘X’ will appear on the right, click it to unsubscribe from their updates
- A message will appear asking you if you want to ‘unsubscribe from article updates?’ Click on the ‘unsubscribe’ button
I hope this helps!
