linkedin-groupsHow often do you check into LinkedIn Groups?
Do you know how to get there? You can get to groups from the drop down menu under work. Then, you’ll arrive a homepage dashboard.
TBH, I’m not as active as I could be. That’s about to change and here’s why. Today, LinkedIn sent this announcement . . .
We’re currently working on making some changes to the LinkedIn Groups experience, and because you are one of our expert users, we wanted to give you some advance details on what’s coming. Groups is at the heart of what makes LinkedIn a trusted place for professionals to help and support one another, and the changes we’re planning will make Groups a bigger part of the main LinkedIn experience. 

  1. iOS app is phasing out on February 15, 2018.

As a preview, here are some of the improvements you can look forward to when we roll them out to the main LinkedIn Groups web and mobile experiences:
2. Discover and access Groups more easily. You’ll be able to access your Groups right from the homepage. Yay! And you’ll see the latest content from your Groups in notifications and the homepage feed.

3, Be a part of richer conversations. You’ll be able to post videos into your groups, @mention the members you want to weigh in, and keep the conversation going by replying to comments.
Ultimately, our goal is to create an even better Groups experience within the primary LinkedIn applications, so we are putting our focus there over the coming weeks and months. We’ll be sending you updates as these improvements and many others become available. Stay tuned! Thanks so much to LinkedIn for sending over this update. Did you get it, too?
