Build Your Connections

First, make sure you have a robust list of connections that make sense for you, your industry, and your audience. Use LinkedIn’s People You May Know feature to find more people to connect with, or use the LinkedIn search feature.

Follow Thought Leaders

Find and follow thought leaders or people who are sharing interesting content on LinkedIn. Who are the big names? Who posts interesting content?

See something interesting that a connection has re-posted or interacted with? Consider following the person who originated that content by clicking the follow button or the bell on their profile.

Tell LinkedIn What Content Is Valuable to You

Use the three dots at the top right of the posts in your Feed to tell LinkedIn what types of content you prefer to see in your Feed. When you click on those three dots, you get a lot of options, including options to unfollow or mute people, as well as the “I don’t want to see this” button.
