LinkedIn Aims to Reduce Click-bait Posts on the Platform
Users and engagement on LinkedIn are on the rise and how! Owing to that, LinkedIn is introducing certain measures to cut down click-bait posts on the platform.
Of course the change in the algorithm is clear — pushing content or LinkedIn users who are authentic or initiating conversations that matter. Besides, LinkedIn is now offering users to choose what sort of content they’d like to consume or not, especially political content. Not all too keen to read a certain category of news? No problem, opt out!
With this level of filtering, LinkedIn also intends to reduce posts where authors actively seek likes or engagement.
