LinkedIn Launches Polls for its Groups
To facilitate more conversations among its Groups, LinkedIn created Polls.
Principal product manager at LinkedIn, Ian McCarthy, wrote on LinkedIn Blog that they released such tool since Group Moderators were looking for “easy, time-sensitive ways to generate conversations within the group.”
The new tool is not exclusive to group moderators; anyone belonging in a Group can start a poll. However, group moderators can restrict the addition of new polls.
LinkedIn tested the Polls in the Harvard Business Review’s Group of 150 members and have received 64 responses. This hopefully will pull up LinkedIn’s lack of activities aside from networking and job hunting.View Article Source »
