It seems social media platforms are taking a new direction – with the recent Newsfeed change announcement from Facebook that puts more emphasis on “meaningful interactions” favouring posts from Friends and Groups. LinkedIn has also decided to put more focus into Groups on its own platform.
In an email to group admins – LinkedIn announced some new tools and options to improve the group experience.
New Navigation and Notification Options
LinkedIn’s giving groups more focus, with a direct link from the home page and new notifications of group activity.
Videos in Groups
Users will soon be able to post videos in groups, which will also include the regular capacity to @mention members and invite them to comment.
In the email, LinkedIn also notes that they’ll soon be removing support for their LinkedIn Groups iOS app as of February 15 2018.
