Major LinkedIn Group Updates to Note

LinkedIn has consistently been a well-organized and trustworthy social media site accepted for use corporate settings. The area known as "Groups" on LinkedIn allows sharing and discussions via groups set up with common interests. Recent updates to the Groups area on LinkedIn are being released this week with improvements designed to help users navigate and use Groups more efficiently.

Aside from an overall dashboard design update, other notable updates include:

1. Integration of shared news articles related to the group or topic.

2. A scrolling carousel of popular discussions within the Group and quick "like" and "comment" tabs underneath.

3. A widget showing influential Group members (the most active members in that Group).

For more information on these updates, visit the LinkedIn Blog.
