Help users understand a group better, claims the social media company
Linkedin has announced a new Group Statistics dashboard offering that lets group admins to scrutinise the demographics and growth of their groups.
CEO of Linkedin Jeff Weiner said on Twitter that these dashboards turn relevant information about each group into an infographic-style display. This information, which can be summarised on a dashboard, can also be broken down in three areas: "Demographics", "Growth" and "Activity".
LinkedIn Data visualisation designer Anita Lillie, in a blog posting of LinkedIn, states, "We’ve designed each infographic view to highlight the most important signals you’ll need to help you understand your group better."
The Group Statistics dashboard also shows the group’s growth, displays how many new members have joined the group each week and displays through a graph the group’s week-over-week growth.
The "Activity" tab highlights the discussions taken place within the group.
LinkedIn has also added a LinkedIn Events page that displays a list of events one might be interested in.
