    I keep seeing sponsored content after every 2 or 3 posts.

    Not reproduced. I guess you are not talking about those:

    "Popular with employees at"
    "... was mentioned in the news"

    Please check @Adam

    I'm talking about the 'Promoted' content. In LinkedIn there is an option to report these 'Promoted' posts, and the options describe them as ads. Attached images for clarification.

    I modified the current rule. They have different styling in codes sometimes.
    Update will be available in about 3 hours.

    So it seems like the fix didn't work. I waited a few days to see if the new rule will work, but the Promoted content is still showing up in LinkedIn app...

    Here lies the problem - the app. I fixed it on the website - not the app.

    Was this fixed for the app? There was no update, and the ads are still showing up in the app.
    Thanks
