The cool thing about LinkedIn Groups feature (finding this is an interesting case of buried UI) is that this stuff seems to be officially/unofficially sponsored by the groups hosted by LinkedIn. This means I get a cool logo next to my vanity profile:
LinkedIn Groups, It’ll get you drunk!
Other than the cool logo, WTF? There is no event management; there is no message board; there is no mailing list; there is no homepage. It is just a directory. Why do I need groups for that?
I was hoping that we could use this for Lunch 2.0, but I’m not too sure it adds anything. Thoughts?
Looks like this idea needs more than a little work to be useful.
