LinkedIn started out in the living room of its co-founder Reid Hoffman in 2002 and now operates the world’s largest professional network on the Internet with 161 million members in over 200 countries and territories. It is available in seventeen languages: English, Czech, Dutch, French, German, Indonesian, Italian, Japanese, Korean, Malay, Polish, Portuguese, Romanian, Russian, Spanish, Swedish and Turkish.
LinkedIn receives a new member after every half second. If you do not exist on LinkedIn then you are surely missing job and consulting opportunities available in this professional network. If you are present on LinkedIn, I invite you to get connected with me at http://ca.linkedin.com/in/gurpreettw.
One of the interesting features of LinkedIn is LinkedIn professional groups. These groups offer a virtual discussion room to allow collaboration and discussion among like-minded professionals.
As of March 29, 2012 there are 1,248,019 such groups whose membership varies from 1 to 744,662. Writers, and especially technical writers, are members of several professional writing related LinkedIn groups. In this article I would share 10 LinkedIn groups that are quite useful for technical writers:
6. API Documentation (A group for API/Programmer documentation writers)
