Everyone’s favorite online business networking website, LinkedIn, has had groups for quite a while. They have also had a groups directory for a while – but it has never been searchable. Up until now (well, tomorrow really), the only ways to learn about interesting groups that you might want to join were word of mouth, or noticing a group badge on a someone’s profile.
LinkedIn announced that on Friday, July 11 (also known as Apple iPhone 3G Day), it will add a seachable group directory. Now you can run a search like “knowledge management” and you’ll find groups, including my favorite: [shamelss plug alert] “Knowledge Management for Legal Professionals.”
