How many LinkedIn groups have you joined?  Once people find LinkedIn groups, I find that there is a tendency to join 8 or 10 in a flurry of enthusiasm and then realise that you can’t cope with that many emails and ignore the lot!

Groups can work really well if you join 3 – 4 and participate in the on-going discussions regularly.  It might take you a while to find the right 3 – 4 groups – don’t be scared to join and then leave.  Think about where your audience might hangout.

Which brings me to the main purpose of this blog entry.  How do you actually leave a group?!  It is a question I frequently get asked – and to be honest it is a little hidden!  Here are the steps:

Leaving a LinkedIn Group

  1. Login to LinkedIn
  2. Click on the Groups > Your Groups menu option at the top
  3. Select the group you want to leave
  4. Click More > Your Settings (the More within the Group menu)
  5. Scroll right down to the bottom and click Leave Group on the right hand side.

I hope that helps.  Which LinkedIn groups are you finding particularly useful?
