When I log into LinkedIn, I see Pulse updates at the top of my screen, and I find them often not applicable. Is there a way to stop the Pulse updates on the LinkedIn homepage (that is, to remove it or suppress it or rearrange its location on the page)?
I too would like to disable unnecessary updates, but I did not find an option in my settings, so I added
<LI id="today-news-wrapper" class="feed-item today-news-el tod-wrpr"> to the AdBlock browser extension.
In other words:
- Install the AdBlock extension.
- Go to AdBlock settings tab #3
- Edit filters manually—click the Edit button.
www.linkedin.com##LI[id="today-news-wrapper"][class="feed-item today-news-el tod-wrpr feed-item-insert"] www.linkedin.com##LI[id="today-news-wrapper"][class="feed-item today-news-el tod-wrpr"]
in the textarea.
- Click the Save button.
Reload LinkedIn home page.
I use the following Adblock Plus recipe, under Ad Blocking Rules:
To apply this solution:
Press control-shift-f or click on the AdBlock icon in your browser > Select Filter Preferences, then click on the tab called Custom filters. You should see an item called Ad Blocking Rules. Click on that and on the "actions" button, click Show Rules. You'll then see a pane appear in the right hand side. There you can Add Filter. Click that button and copy and paste the above text there. Close the Adblock Plus pop up box and you're set.
When you now go to the LinkedIn homepage, you'll see the LinkedIn Pulse News section is no longer visible.
