Follow the Conversation and it'll follow you back

March 3, 2009

Being a member of different groups on LinkedIn (one on corporate blogging, one on conferences I'd like to be at - SXSW, etc.) I've always had the challenge of not being able to keep on top of the numerous conversations that are brewing across these different groups.

Wouldn't it be helpful if you were informed when someone has either started or participated in a discussion on any of those numerous group threads?

Well now you can, simply click the "follow" link and anytime there is new comment in the conversation thread you'll receive an email update. Previously this was available only to those who initiated the Q&A thread by asking the question.

Check out the groups you're following and "follow" interesting conversations
