LinkedIn Groups You Might Like

September 26, 2008

The LinkedIn Analytics team has been hard at work finding new ways to help you leverage your network and connect you to resources that can enhance your career. Some of our other features include People You May Know and Who’s Viewed My Profile.

Today we’re introducing a new module to help you find groups you might like to join. We’ve recently deployed enhanced group functionality, and many of you have already joined the lively discussions in your groups. The “Groups You Might Like”  module will help you find alumni groups from your schools and previous companies, as well as groups that similar professionals have found valuable.

You can find the module in the lower right hand corner of the LinkedIn homepage:

Not everybody will have the module - you might have already joined all the groups we’d like to suggest, or your profile might have too little information for us to help.

Here are a few ways you can help us suggest more groups you might like to join, as well as improve your overall LinkedIn experience:

1) Enhance your profile

Your profile is your professional presence on the web; you can ensure it represents you by highlighting your professional interests, expertise, and describing your previous positions and education.

2) Enhance your network

Connect with professionals you know and trust and stay up to date on their career moves and people they know and trust.

We want to hear your feedback - leave us a comment on what you think of our new feature.
