LinkedIn now provides ‘disable comment’ option to manage comments on long-form articles

By : |February 9, 2017 0

Whether it’s Facebook, Twitter, or Instagram, social media is increasingly becoming a hostile space because of online abuse. In the light of such incidents, many platforms are taking initiatives to control and reduce online abuse.

Making a move in this very direction, LinkedIn has rolled out features allowing users to manage comments on their long-form articles. In a bid to provide a “professional environment” that encourages users to share their perspectives and thoughts on professional issues, LinkedIn is now giving users the option to enable or disable comments.

Once you have posted your long-form article, you can go to the Comment settings icon and click “Disable comments”. If you choose to disable comments from posts with existing comments, the comments will be deleted permanently. However, according to the Venture Beat report, this option is available only for the desktop. For mobile users, they will have to activate the ‘disable’ option from another device.
Moreover, commenting can be turned back on at any time.

“We continue to encourage two-way conversations on LinkedIn, and for many members who publish, comments are a great way to start discussions and can lead to broader reach. At the same time, we want to give you greater choice in the types of conversations you have on LinkedIn,” explained company product manager Heidi Wang in a blog post.

LinkedIn is also planning to add the option to disable comments on all of your LinkedIn posts.

In case you have wanted to have a dialogue with your network, and received inappropriate comments, now you can flag or hide the comments. LinkedIn recently went through a makeover, check the details here.
