LinkedIn Has a Rigid “Hide” Behavior

LinkedIn

Lately, due to increased activity on my LinkedIn home page (from connections), I chose to “clean up” few updates for me to browse the relevant updates at a later time. So, I decided to hide insignificant updates from a particular connection. What I had expected of the LinkedIn feature was a selective hide; that is, the system should allow me to selectively hide few updates from a connection. Strangely, what LinkedIn does is – it hides all updates (with an Undo option) – check the pic below. So, it’s either all updates from a member or none.

Not a flexible experience.
