LinkedIn has released a new landing page for LinkedIn Groups users to manage their participation and discover new groups. You can access this if you go to "Interests" in the top menu, and then go to "Groups".

The company says it makes it easier to stay up to date on what's happening in groups you manage or are a member of, and makes your time more productive.

"At the top of the page, you’ll see all of your current groups in one place. If the group has new activity, you’ll instantly see the number of updates, new discussions or job postings within that group when you hover over it,' explains LinkedIn's Daria Axelrod Marmer. "We’ve also made it possible to start or join a conversation in any of your groups directly from this page. New to groups? We’ll help you get started by suggesting relevant groups you can join today."

There's also a new conversation feed:

Earlier this week, we learned that LinkedIn is killing the Products & Services tab on April 14th, encouraging businesses to use Company Updates and Showcase Pages as alternatives.
