LinkedIn announced this evening that they have made available a new option within their popular Groups feature called Subgroups. Some of the benefits of this new option include:
1) Set the aims for the subgroup by posting a featured discussion in the subgroup.
2) Kindle the conversation by posting a news article with a brief comment every day for the first month of the group.
Provide an ongoing focus for members’ attention by adding 10 RSS feeds related to the focus of the subgroup.
Drive attention to the subgroup through your comments in the main group and in other groups where you participate”.
