How to Start a Discussion in a LinkedIn Group

If you are a member or owner of a LinkedIn group, you can start a new discussion. When you start a group discussion, all the group members who have configured their group settings to receive notification emails are automatically notified about the new discussion via an email.

When a new group discussion is started, any group member can respond and reply to it. In case a person is not interested in participating in the discussion but still wants to remain updated about its activities, he/she can follow the discussion.

Here’s how you can start a group discussion in LinkedIn:

    ■Using any web browser of your choice on your computer, sign-in to your LinkedIn account.
    ■On your account’s Home page, click Profile from the menu bar at the top.

    ■On your profile page, click the pencil icon representing the Groups section at the bottom.
    ■From the displayed groups, click the one in which you want to start a discussion. (OHGOI for this demonstration.)

    ■Once the group page opens up, ensure that you are on the Discussions interface.
    ■In the Start a discussion or share something with the group field, type the discussion text.
    ■Click to select an appropriate Discussion type radio button (General, Job, or Promotion) as needed.
    ■Finally click the Share button to start the discussion.
