LinkedIn-Groups-for-NonprofWith the launch of new a LinkedIn Groups design, the company resolved one of its most pressing problems – LinkedIn Group spam. Group management had become cumbersome and time-consuming for many admins of medium and large groups. Flagging irrelevant discussions as promotion posts or deleting them altogether can take up to thirty minutes a day and if you didn’t invest the time to get rid of the clutter, then the group would become overrun with spam and lose its appeal to group members. The new design, however, requires people to participate if they want their discussions to get noticed. The mass posting of links as discussions will likely still continue, but without participation, the links won’t achieve “Popular” status.
