Here’s a question I just got:
I am finding it hard to find the URL for the two groups that I manage so I can email this on to prospective members. The only URL I come across is when I click on send invitations and the URL is at the bottom of the left-hand column.
Is this the best that LinkedIn offers? Is there not just a general URL for each group’s home page rather than having to invite people to register?
This used to be easy, in a messed-up-sort-of-way.
Now it is even more messed up, but even easier (in other words, it’s easy to get the link, but it makes NO sense how they’ve done it, and why they removed the link from where it used to be).
Step 1: Click on Groups
Step 2: Mouse over the name of your group and copy/save the Group URL
Step 3: Paste the URL in something (notepad, and email, etc.) and chop off the last part (the part in blue below… anything after the “&” character after the Group number).
That’s your Group URL, afaik. Test it with some friends (I did on Twitter and the response was that that was, indeed, my Group page).
Mine is this: http://www.linkedin.com/groups?gid=59081
Now you can email that to people, or put it on a blog, newsletter, behind an image, etc.
