LinkedIn is pulling the plug on LinkedIn Answers. When the plan was announced, I started looking for alternatives immediately. Of course, there won’t be a service that completely mimics the soon-to-be-withdrawn feature but the following are services that are worthy enough for us to try.

Hi Wayne,

From the beginning, LinkedIn groups have been a great place to make connections and exchange ideas. Despite some bumps along the way, they have remained so. There have been changes, of course, but mostly they have only enhanced the power of this feature. Take the groups seriously, be thoughtful about joining and contributing, and you will definitely be rewarded. Thanks for sharing this post with the BizSugar community.

Hi Heather, you're welcome.

I am exploring different groups that I can be a part of. I truly believe that Groups can be a great relationship building tool if efforts are focused on providing value to other group members.

Do you mind sharing groups that you like the most?

For some, LinkedIn Answers was a valuable professional resource used to find answers, resources and even vendor partners. So yeah, I think some folks are sad to see it go.this article above shows tools and sites that can be used now that Answers is soon to be on the shelf? One of the logical alternatives for LinkedIn Answers would be another tool within the same platform. thanks for sharing.

There is a downside with using LinkedIn Groups, which is a feature that bears the closest similarity as Answers. However, there are a couple of downsides. Most groups on LinkedIn are not active and the active ones are filled with spam. Some tips on how to counter this is shared in the article. :)

You're welcome, BizRock. I'm part of a number of forums and some of the discussions that are ongoing have higher quality than most discussions on social media sites.
