Hi Lauren, I think Linkedin Groups is the best place to network with like minded individuals and also to build your professional brand. I am a business development executive at a financial consulting company and I have seen tremendous engagement with linkedin discussions, especially in some focused well-managed linkedin groups. Engagement is key for nurturing leads that you find on Linkedin. I highly recommend using inkedin groups. Something that might be of value to other readers of this site - I have recently started using a tool called that makes LinkedIn group usage much easier. It brings together discussions from all my groups to one place and takes out most of the spam & irrelevant discussions. I don't have to go through all the emails, which was a big issue. Do you know of any other tools that help make linkedin experience better?
