They are a fantastic way to share your own content, and engage on the content of others' you would like to connect with. Groups provide you with a targeted networking opportunity that you can't get elsewhere. Related Post : Are You a LinkedIn Influencer?

The glitch I am referring to is Site Wide Automated Monitoring (SWAM), LinkedIn's automated system they put in place in an effort to prevent users from spamming in groups.

By John White, CareerToolBox.com Several months ago, I met a gentlemen from Pakistan on LinkedIn. Since then we have gotten to know one another by trading messages, and from interacting on each other's posts, etc. We look very different, have different cultures, practice different religions, and come from countries where negative stereotypes of each other are common place on both sides.

While my current position is a domestic role, I know that my global network will benefit me one day when I am in an... Read More

LinkedIn Premium - Is it for You?

LinkedIn why take a subscription? ByCyril Bladier During my almost weekly conferences or trainings on LinkedIn, I'm often asked if it's worth taking a paid subscription on LinkedIn.
