How many LinkedIn groups have you joined? Once people find LinkedIn groups, I find that there is a tendency to join 8 or 10 in a flurry of enthusiasm and then realise that you can’t cope with that many emails and ignore the lot!
Groups can work really well if you join 3 – 4 and participate in the on-going discussions regularly. It might take you a while to find the right 3 – 4 groups – don’t be scared to join and then leave. Think about where your audience might hangout.
Which brings me to the main purpose of this blog entry. How do you actually leave a group?! It is a question I frequently get asked – and to be honest it is a little hidden! Here are the steps:
- Login to LinkedIn
- Click on the Groups > Your Groups menu option at the top
- Select the group you want to leave
- Click More > Your Settings (the More within the Group menu)
- Scroll right down to the bottom and click Leave Group on the right hand side.
I hope that helps. Which LinkedIn groups are you finding particularly useful?
