As you probably have figured out by now, Linkedin can be a great place to network, keep in touch with old pals (in a professional “non-facebook” fashion), and take the next leap in your career. According to this infographic by Lab42:

  • 61% use Linkedin for professional networking
  • 81% of Linkedin users belong to at least 1 group
  • And about 61% of users also use Linkedin as a place to network within their own industry

After looking at the results, it’s fairly obvious that most users on Linkedin find it a fairly useful tool to not only network, but join other like-minded individuals in their respective fields that are important to them. On that note, we have scoured Linkedin and found the 10 best user experience groups (in no particular order) for User Experience pros – like yourself. All you have to do is login to your linkedin account and type the group names (below) into the search bar at the top.

*We are not endorsing any of the groups mentioned above or responsible for their content. We simply state these are great places to network with fellow UX minds. Please READ each group’s rules and restrictions and do not abuse the discussion boards. Not all groups may be “open” to join to the public, which means you have to apply to be a member first.
