PLUG Accepted As LinkedIn Group

PLUG has been accepted as a group by LinkedIn.

Once you are accepted you will get the following benefits:

  • You can see others on LinkedIn who are members of the group.
  • You can send “InMail” directly to them without going through your other connections.
    • You can turn this off in the ‘settings’ link that will appear in the “Your Groups” block on the home page.

Unfortunately no one outside the group will see the PLUG logo. This is because LinkedIn wants lots of money for that ‘feature,’ and PLUG is broke. If you are a LinkedIn fan and want to pay the fee to get this set up, let us know.

To get connected to the group go here:

Then click on:
“Accept Invitation”

You will be approved ASAP, then you will have a “Your Groups” section that will appear on your home page.
