LinkedIn group contribution provides pathway to establishment of your expertise

LinkedIn has added a new feature to assist members of groups to become more visible. Whether one is looking for a new job or to advance their career through professional networking, this new feature is sure to be beneficial to the consistent LinkedIn user.

Contribution levels is a new system that shows members how influential they are in a group. It appears on the right side of your group page you’ll see the top contributors in the group section along with your own contribution level in the group. Top contributors are group members who post the most interesting discussions and comments.

Here is why it matters to you. The top contributors will have a text indicator under their headline any time they post a discussion in the group. Clicking a profile image or name will take you to that member's activity page. The Top Contributor indicator will also appear on a group member’s profile.

Contribution levels are group specific and recalculated every day. The contribution levels are, in order:

  1. Getting started
  2. Finding an audience
  3. Making an impact
  4. Building influence
  5. Top Contributor

You can increase your contribution level, start interesting discussions and comment thoughtfully on other group members' discussions. As people interact more with you, you'll see your score go up.

Your contribution level will go down if you are not active or your posts are promotional or inappropriate for the group.

This makes it a great way for you to increase exposure to your LinkedIn page and resume by carefully participating in groups that will show your value as an individual.
