Earlier in the week, LinkeIn notified group managers that additional features will be added to the Group module on the network. These new features offer a significant improvement over past services including:
Discussion forums: Simple discussion spaces for you and your members. (You can turn discussions off in your management control panel if you like.)
Enhanced roster: Searchable list of group members.
Digest emails: Daily or weekly digests of new discussion topics which your members may choose to receive. (We will be turning digests on for all current group members soon, and prompting them to set to their own preference.)
Group home page: A private space for your members on LinkedIn.
New features will be available on Friday August 29th.
You can join the AMA Pittsburgh LinkedIn Group at http://www.linkedin.com/e/gis/95541. You must be a current member of AMA Pittsburgh to join. If you are interested in becoming a member, more information is available at www.amapittsburgh.org
