Bulk Unfollow People on LinkedIn

Yeah, LinkedIn is great. But, I don’t want to see what my connections have liked. This is not Facebook. Ultimately, it’s their choice. The connections can do whatever they like.

Recently I decided to unfollow everyone and only follow the key-people. I did a quick google search and found an answer on Quora. It works on Chrome, and I’ll share it here:

Step 1: Visit this page on LinkedIn; linkedin.com/feed/following.

Step 2: Scroll down on the page so all the following profiles would load. You can scroll down a little and run the *script many times if you’re too lazy.

Step 3: Open Developer Tools in Chrome (Right Click -> Inspect). Switch to the console tab.

Step 4: Paste the script below and type enter:

var buttons = $("button"),
interval = setInterval(function(){
var btn = $('.is-following');
console.log("Clicking:", btn);
if (buttons.length === 0) {
}, 1000);

The script in action.

If the script breaks in the middle, reload the page and repeat the process until the following count reaches to zero and LinkedIn displays ‘Follow Fresh Perspectives.’

Good luck.

Update: Here’s another script to bulk follow connections.
