Only Allowed 50 Groups in Linkedin??? What Gives, Linkedin? This is a NETWORKING site.

Are your frustrated with the fact that you can only join a maximum of 50 groups on Linkedin? Like most everyone else, unless you have the “pro” version of Linkedin, you are stuck with this lower limit for your groups. Don’t despair, as most of the groups that you are a part of can change from time to time with your changing interests. 

The trouble with hitting the 50 Group maximum is not so much in the fact that you are part of 50 Groups, but rather the way to change and remove yourself from Groups is one of those hidden features that you have to search around for, until now.

Here is the Six-step quick and easy way to reduce the number of Groups that you are in.

Step 1: Select “Groups” from your main menu bar.

Step 3: Select the “Reorder” menu. This will bring you to the main groups page.

Step 4: Get more detail on each Linkedin Group. On the left side of your screen you will be able to see the different order preferences that you have. You can adjust what order each of your Groups is in. This also can be set to display a certain number of Groups on your own profile page. The “Member Settings” is what you want to select, where you can then actually get the detailed settings of each Linkedin Group that you are in.

Step 5: Similar to Step 4 - the left side of the new menu is the detailed settings of this specific group. Note all of the different settings you can change to adjust what you hear from the group, when, etc. On the bottom left is the button that you can now press to remove yourself from the Group. Click on it!

Should I accept that Linkedin Invitation?

Linkedin Rule #367 - You don’t know everyone. The purpose of networking is just that - to network and to get to know different people. Would you go to a social, a wedding, a party or networking event and ignore people who were interested in talking further or getting to know you? Probably not. If you were greeted with a handshake, would you refuse to shake their hand back. Again, probably not - you would come across as rude.

Linkedin is no different. It’s not a “pure” social network like Facebook nor a dating site like Match.com where you might have to worry about getting stalked by someone. It’s not a pick-up site either. It’s about business. It’s about PEOPLE doing business. People are there to make contacts, meet people, develop leads or whatever the purpose. If you can’t deal with this, then stay home - and think of unplugging your computer.

Linkedin is online. This means that people will want to introduce themselves to you… you guessed it, online. There is no other way to do it. Having a “rule” about not meeting new people online with Linkedin, unless you have met before, is really missing the point here. Take your profile off of Linkedin then if this is what you want.

Linkedin is about meeting and connecting with people online - for the business community as a whole. One of the most unique features is that you can do just that - connect and “meet” with like minded business people from around the world. Can you do that from where you are? Not without Linkedin. Or rather, you probably could, but the magnitude of it would truly be small. Now is the time to think really big. 

Unless you are at the top of your game and your business, you don’t know what benefits and synergies may exist down the road with the millions of connection possibilities available for you. Take some chances, see what everyone else is up to and capable of doing. While you may think that you may never use or need these contacts, open your mind to the possibilities of what others have to offer to you, and then what you have to offer to others. You never know when your expertise or skills may be needed as well by your Linkedin connections down the road. Linkedin is meant to help you explore the big world of business.  

Linkedin Rule #367 - ALWAYS accept Linkedin Invitations. You can always change your mind later, but at least be willing to explore the initial possibilities.
