LinkedIn timesaver tip – a quick way to search for group discussions

Did you know that you can search groups for particular discussions using keywords?

You can’t, as far as I’m aware, search multiple groups simultaneously but you can search within a group -making it much easier to find the discussions you’re interested in.

To do so:

  • Click search within the group toolbar
  • Type your keyword into the search box that appears on the left hand side of the screen
  • Hit ‘search’

This will pull up a list of the discussions within that group containing your keyword.

What other time-saving social media tips would you share?

If you want to understand how to use LinkedIn for business development and marketing purposes or want someone to help you along the way, please get in touch. I’d love to hear from you.

    Kirsten… I can’t seem to see the search bar in our group page on the left side. I’m a moderator so should be able to see it, right?. Can you help?

      You have to go to the ‘Search’ tab within the group. Just click on the group and search is the 4th tab over (between ‘Members’ and ‘Manage’). You don’t have to be a moderator to see it – it should be visible to all members. Let me know if this works!
