Linkedin is useful but extremely cluttered now, especially if you accept lot of connection requests (founders/ startup folk for me). Great posts used to surface easily earlier in the feed, but now it’s a chore to find even one good one.
Linkedin should have a setting where you don’t automatically follow every new connection, but can pick and choose who to follow. #FeatureRequest
Anyway, am taking the following steps to make my feed more useful:
- Unfollow everyone who’s posting “inspirational” posts and everyone who likes such posts.
- Unfollow everyone whose posts have hashtags in their own name and everyone who likes those posts.
- Unfollow everyone who is posting regular “advice”, but it’s just really a crib about others. And unfollow people who comment & just crib in return.
Hope it’s not counter-productive (FOMO)! Will appreciate any other advice on how to make Linkedin feed better for oneself.
