I’m a member of an odd Linkedin Group called “LI Group Experts. Tracking changes and workarounds in the Groups system.” It was set up over a year ago to help group owners and managers on Linkedin see the wood for the trees after the massive changes to groups brought in in October 2016 (before the Microsoft buy out).
This week the owner Curt Gowan posted that he believes Linkedin isn’t going to abandon groups but instead is building a brand new groups structure. Every so often Curt produces a summary post of all the discussions in the group – here is a recent one which gives you a flavour of the discussions:
- Due to a major bug, LinkedIn is losing contact with more and more members.
- Hidden single page to check settings on all your groups.
- How to be sure you are getting all the emails for your groups.
- Tips on when to reject applicants
- Easily set up a “trapline” for the things you check on LI
- Only an owner can send a personal note to an applicant.
- How moderation settings work
- You can reference group members in announcements
- You have 30 days to process moderation and classifier queue items.
- Don’t approve bad post and then immediately delete? LI may spam members?
- Exactly What Does Reporting A Conversation Or Post Do?
