In order to provide a professional environment that encourages users to share your perspectives and thoughts on professional issues, LinkedIn will be rolling out the new ability for users to directly manage the comments on their articles. LinkedIn also gives users the option to enable or disable comments.
To disable comments, go to the Comment settings icon at the bottom and click “Disable comments” after you’ve posted a long-form article using LinkedIn’s publishing platform on the desktop. LinkedIn will also soon add the option to turn off comments on all of your LinkedIn posts.
As you all know, managing spam and troll comments is a headache. You need to keep track of your comments section to avoid inappropriate comments. While LinkedIn monitors for these types of comments and work directly with members, it now allows users to flag and hide abusive or offensive comments made on any article or post.
How to do it:
- Click the “More” icon on the top right of a comment.
- Click “Report” to report the comment.
- In the pop-up window, tell us more about why you chose to report the comment.
Try out these new features and let us know your experience in the comments section below.
