“No politics” Button Now Sort Of Exists In LinkedIn

If you’re sick of looking at politics in your LinkedIn feed because political discourse these days is so toxic, LinkedIn can help you with that. LinkedIn CEO Ryan Roslansky recently spoke to the Wall Street Journal’s Joanna Stern in a video interview, which you can watch here.

Part way through the interview, Stern details how you can find the “allow political content” button.

  • Go to account preferences
  • Feed preferences

If you’re lucky there will be a button that will allow you to turn on and off political content. I say lucky because LinkedIn is still testing this. And you may not be one of the ones chosen to get this feature. And I should also point out that it is only available in the English language in the US. However Roslansky reiterated that the feature could become widespread if it proves popular and useful enough amongst the current pool of LinkedIn users giving it a test drive. At this point, I’d like to give a shoutout to the LinkedIn users who helped me to confirm the existence of this feature.

I wish more social media companies would come up with a feature like this as like I said, political discourse right now is so toxic.
