As a long time linkedin user, I was quick to create a number of Linkedin user groups including my Toronto Entrepreneur, cloud storage and cloudcamp groups. But for the most part linkedin's group functionality has been, umm, none existent, forcing me to look for alternatives such as Google Groups. But that's about to change.
This Friday, linkedin will be adding several much-requested features to their group functionality:
* Discussion forums: Simple discussion spaces for members.
* Enhanced roster: Searchable list of group members.
* Digest emails: Daily or weekly digests of new discussion topics which members may choose to receive.
* Group home page: A private space for members on LinkedIn.
Expect a notice from me on linkedin, assuming you've joined one of my groups.
