LinkedIn has set new limits on this frequently used feature which was often touted as a way to “get around” their other InMail limitations.
The new LinkedIn Group member messaging guidelines are as follows:
You can now only send a total 15 free 1:1 group messages to fellow group members each month. This limit is set for all the groups you belong to and not for each group individually. If you go over the limit, you’ll see an error message until the next month begins.Unsent messages don’t carry over to the next month. This limit includes messages sent directly from a group, to your 1st degree connections.If you need to send more messages for recruiting, promoting, or connecting with members outside your network, you must upgrade to one of LinkedIn’s Premium accounts or Recruiter product options.You have to be a member of a group for at least 4 days.You have to be a member of LinkedIn for at least 30 days in order to send messages to fellow group members.
How will this affect your messaging habits? Will this new limit be a big blow?
