The top social media platform of all time is Facebook, closely followed by Instagram and similar platforms like Snapchat and TikTok. What do all of the above platforms have in common? Yes, you guessed it correctly: all these platforms specialize in informal connections and are a big part of pop culture. Users connect with their friends and family, befriend other users, and share and view informal photos and opinions. It’s a very relaxed and open affair for anyone and everyone.
As you might be aware, the majority of the users are Gen Z, who are impressionable and young. While it’s all well and good for them to use Snapchat and Instagram to connect with their friends, that shouldn’t be the end of their social interactions.
Firstly, excessive use of social media apps is a no-go. This is because the internet is vast; young minds spending too much time there will learn most of what they see, and it isn’t all good. There’s a very simple way to manage the time your child spends on the internet; by setting a timer for all the apps they should use in a limit. The internet is a relaxing escape in very small amounts and a bad influence in more than that.
It’s also very important for teenagers to understand how to converse in a professional capacity, or it can be difficult for them to do so when they need it. Sure, school and college teach them about it, but isn’t it better to get as much of it as possible? After all, there’s a good chance they’ll have to do it for a big fraction of their life.
The best way to learn professionally interactive skills in a way that’s appealing and easy to understand is to sign up on LinkedIn. It’s a social media platform, so it’ll hold some appeal for teenagers, and it’s filled with meaningful and interactive content that forces the brain to work rather than relax.
On LinkedIn, users can connect with other users who are in their field of work or are looking to join in. One can also create posts with professional or informational value for others who look up to them. A post can be simple, like who you are, or something complex, like what your job exactly entails and the best way to handle it.
You can also connect with people outside your field, like entrepreneurs who’ve achieved a big name and have a well-defined brand identity. Most such people have talked all about how they got to where they are in their posts, podcasts, interviews, and more.
In today’s blog, we’ll talk about how you can block someone from a LinkedIn company page.
How to Block Someone from LinkedIn Company Page
Let’s say you’re an entrepreneur or a small business owner and have just opened a company page on LinkedIn. If you’re worried that next to no users will follow your profile and content, don’t worry. It takes some time to grow a presence on this platform but as long as you create and post content regularly, it will happen.
A few months later, you have a flourishing brand presence on the platform. However, you’re noticing a few users have sent you inappropriate and offensive DMs and have commented the same under your posts.
You are now understandably mad, but you should always think a little before doing something. Are you sure that ‘clapping back’ at them like adolescents is the best thing to do on a professional platform like LinkedIn? What image would that portray to users who’ve been part of your brand-establishment process all these months? And lastly, will it give you mental peace to say something mean to a person, even though they could’ve been asking for it?
In most professionals’ opinion, the best way to go is to block this user on LinkedIn and be rid of their presence once and for all. Sounds great, right?
Here’s how to block someone from LinkedIn company page
Step 1: Launch LinkedIn on your smartphone and log in to your account.
Step 2: The first screen you’ll see is your Home page. At the top, you’ll see the Search bar. Tap on it.
Step 3: Enter the name of the user you want to block and hit on the magnifying glass icon.
Step 4: From the results that appear, locate and tap on the profile of the user you’re looking for.
Step 5: At the middle of the page, you’ll see two rounded rectangular buttons: Follow and Message. Besides those, you’ll see another small circular icon with three dots arranged horizontally. Tap on that.
Step 6: A pop-up menu will appear with several actionable options. Tap on the last option on this list: Report or block.
Step 7: On the next page, tap on the last option that says Block [username].
Step 8: Next, you’ll be taken to a different page where you’ll be told the consequences of blocking the user. Tap on the blue Block button at the bottom of the page, and you’re good to go!
In the end
As we end this blog, let’s recap all we’ve discussed today.
LinkedIn is a great platform for establishing a strong identity in your professional community, creating a brand name for yourself, and initiating meaningful connections. However, not everyone can abide by the strictly professional rule, and some users take a step ahead straight into the inappropriate category.
Don’t worry; LinkedIn has the right methods to deal with all such users. Regardless of whether you have a personal or a company page, you can block and report any user you wish to.
