LinkedIn is ending support for RSS feeds in LinkedIn groups, as of March 15. The social networking site says it decided to eliminate the feature in order to better invest its resources in “building more great LinkedIn products.” This is essentially the same line LinkedIn used when it announced it was getting rid of its Answers application.
Say good-bye to LinkedIn Answers. I received an email from LinkedIn today stating they are eliminating the application from its site on Jan. 31. Instead, the social networking site says, “we’re focusing our efforts on developing new and more engaging ways to share and discuss professional topics across LinkedIn.” And it says more details will be available in the coming months, “so please stay tuned.”
