LinkedIn's New Group Search: Helping you find the right conversation faster

April 3, 2012

Every day, millions of professionals like you are talking on LinkedIn's Groups to find opportunities, share knowledge, and learn from each other. This is why today we're announcing some important improvements to group search. For example, our members have created over 1.2 million groups on LinkedIn about topics ranging from real estate to fashion to entomology. As we've grown, it's become even more important for us to help you find and engage with the topics you care about most.

Group search helps you search across all the groups on LinkedIn and find the right group for you. We've made several improvements to make your search results smarter and more relevant.

First, instead of relying on the title and description of the group, we give you the best results based on how well your search matches the conversations taking place. We also show your connections who may be in that group, which makes it easier for you to find groups that really matter to you.

Filtering your results is improved as well. You can now filter your results by your network, categories, and also language.

Try it out by searching for groups about social mediainterview tips, or real estate.
