Unlike facebook, LinkedIn creates entire posts just for likes and comments which fills up the feed with crap. This snippet removes those posts from the feed. Best used with an Chrome extension like "Custom JavaScript for Websites".
const removeCrap = () => {
const $crapSelector = $(`
span.ember-view span:contains(" likes this"),
span.ember-view span:contains(" commented on this"),
span.ember-view span:contains(" liked "),
span.ember-view span:contains("Short course you may like"),
div.feed-shared-text-view span:contains("Promoted")
const crapCount = $crapSelector.length;
if(crapCount === 0){
//.css('opacity','0.3'); // Fade out instead of remove
console.log(`Removed ${crapCount} LinkedIn BS posts.`);
setInterval(removeCrap, 100);
