Note: This article has been updated since LinkedIn made changes to their website. Bookmark this page to keep track of the unfollow script. Mad props to STE for the GitHub source.
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. I found a new script while browsing public repositories on GitHub. It works on Chrome, and I’ll share it here:
Step 1: Visit this page on LinkedIn; linkedin.com/feed/following.
Step 2: Open Developer Tools in Chrome (Right Click -> Inspect). Switch to the console tab.
Step 3: Paste this script to the console and press enter:
If the script breaks in the middle, reload the page and repeat the process until the following count reaches zero and LinkedIn displays ‘Follow Fresh Perspectives.’
Update: Here’s another script to bulk follow connections.
