Share scoops directly to a LinkedIn Group

I’ve read recent news on how LinkedIn has become seriously interested in content launching new features that encourage their users to rate each other on skills and expertise as well as engage with business visionaries.

Here at Scoop.it, we’ve known that content plays a significant role in developing thought leadership and brand equity. Today, we launched a new feature where you can share your scoops directly to a LinkedIn Group. Imagine that? You can strengthen your professional network by sharing ideas that matter to a community that cares for such insight and knowledge.

Interested in testing out this new superpower of curating? The steps below will show you how.

Connecting your LinkedIn Group to Your Account

1. Go to your Scoop.it account’s Sharing Options tab found on the Settings page and choose the LinkedIn Group icon.

2. After you allow access to your LinkedIn account, choose the LinkedIn Group to which you would like to share your scoops.

    Very interesting option… but only a few groups are listed, and not the one I would like to link. How to change that?

    Cool, it would be nice to link to more than group at a time and define by topic which group you would update :-)

    the feature is not very useful if you can only tick one group…. I think if you want to make as a new “feature”, you need to give the ability to your users to choose as many many groups as they want at the same time…

      Indeed selecting several groups would be cool, but what makes it unusable for me is not being able to choose which group(s) for each post.

      Simultaneous posting to groups is known as spam. If Scoopit allows that, I will leave both LinkedIn and Scoopit!

    This would be a great feature, but not with only my first 10 groups as an option for sharing to. Completely useless at this point. Disappoinated.

    Unfortunately, your selection of groups from my total groups list are not the groups I would first choose to post to. Can I suggest you make the choice equal to the order in which users have listed the groups in linkedin (that way users can via LinkedIn ensure the groups they want to scoop to are groups of their personal choice). Secondly, you need to allow multiple selections from the limited list as most people will want to post their scoops to more than one group.

    Support to all the comments already made here. We need to select from all our groups, or at least our top 10.

    Indeed, you’re all right, only up to 10 LinkedIn Groups were displayed. The problem has been resolved right now, and you should be able to see all your LinkedIn Groups in your Scoop.it account. Thanks for reporting this!

    The feature is still useless as you can only select just one group, so what is the point here? If you want to make this useful, you need to let users select multiple groups at the same time!!

    Posting to multiple groups simultaneously is spamming. Why on earth would you want to post the same article to 10,20 or 50 groups? Are those groups so similar that they all need to know the exact same information.

    Scoop.it this new feature is a nonsense and will end up with you being booted off LinkedIn
