 Home of the LinkedIn Swedish Snus Enthusiasts


As you are aware, The Unloading Zone has been acting as your unofficial "home" since the Swedish SNUS Enthusiasts Group was formed. We were happy to help and your private section of the The Unloading Zone is still active. By the end of 2008, the Group will have it's true web home here at


I was forwarded an email from the Group Manager which he received from LinkedIn today and am taking the liberty of leaking the story early......because even Citizen Journalists like to scoop the competition!

Dear Larry,

First, thank you for managing your group on LinkedIn. We sincerely appreciate the time and effort you devote to your members, and we know they value it. Together you have made Groups one of the top features on LinkedIn.

This Friday, we will be adding several much-requested features to your group:

Discussion forums: Simple discussion spaces for you and your members. (You can turn discussions off in your management control panel if you like.) He's not going to unless the Group doesn't want it.

Enhanced roster: Searchable list of group members.

Digest emails: Daily or weekly digests of new discussion topics which your members may choose to receive. (We will be turning digests on for all current group members soon, and prompting them to set to their own preference.)

Group home page: A private space for your members on LinkedIn.

We're confident that these new features will spur communication, promote collaboration, and make your group more valuable to you and your members.

We hope you can come by LinkedIn on Friday morning to check out the new functionality and get a group discussion going by posting a welcome message. He will be there in spirit with bells on....unless LinkedIn wants to fly him out to Mountain View, California and put him up in a 5 star hotel, all expenses paid. If so, please contact him immediately to discuss travel arrangements.


The LinkedIn Groups Team

Since I am publicly posting this to ensure the members see it, for those of you not familiar with LinkedIn, it is NOT another FaceBook or YouTube or MySpace. It's also not for everyone.

LinkedIn is the largest professional networking website on the planet. This is how LinkedIn describes itself:

What is LinkedIn?

LinkedIn is an online network of more than 25 million experienced professionals from around the world, representing 150 industries.

When you join, you create a profile that summarizes your professional accomplishments. Your profile helps you find and be found by former colleagues, clients, and partners. You can add more connections by inviting trusted contacts to join LinkedIn and connect to you.

Your network consists of your connections, your connections’ connections, and the people they know, linking you to thousands of qualified professionals.

Through your network you can:

Find potential clients, service providers, subject experts, and partners who come recommended

Be found for business opportunities

Search for great jobs

Discover inside connections that can help you land jobs and close deals

Post and distribute job listings

Find high-quality passive candidates

Get introduced to other professionals through the people you know

LinkedIn is free to join. We also offer paid accounts that give you more tools for finding and reaching the right people, whether or not they are in your network.

LinkedIn participates in the EU Safe Harbor Privacy Framework and is certified to meet the strict privacy guidelines of the European Union. All relationships on LinkedIn are mutually confirmed, and no one appears in the LinkedIn Network without knowledge and explicit consent.

LinkedIn is located in Mountain View, California and is funded by world-class investors including Sequoia Capital, Greylock, the European Founders Fund, Bessemer Venture Partners, and Bain Capital Ventures.

This is what a Public Profile looks like...I'm borrowing Larry's. He also doesn't know I'm doing this and will probably make me take it down tomorrow. Just click the button: View Larry Waters's profile on LinkedIn

The Public Profile is just that: for the public. LinkedIn supplies the HTML code for a number of different buttons and links like the one above. You can embed it in email signatures, business letters, resumes, blogs or websites: anything which will accept HTML.

At the bottom of the Public Profile you will see a button labeled see Full Profile. You must be a member to view that. It includes such things as professional recommendations, Groups a member belongs to, and whatever else the member wishes to exclude from their Public Profile.

You may also limit what is seen in your Full Profile. Larry really doesn't: I do. That's why I'm using his as an example, not mine (plus I treasure my anonymity).

For more information or to join LinkedIn, visit or, if you know Larry, you can always ask him to invite you when you view his profile (he's really going to kill me for this).

Once a member, you may apply to join any of the hundreds of professional groups, or common interest groups, such as the Swedish Snus Enthusiasts Group.

Being a member of LinkedIn as well, I belong to a number of e-commerce, government affairs, and Internet groups, and have never seen a group that charges a fee. Some groups do require you meet certain criteria to join, however. But if you don't meet that criteria, you would have no interest in that Group anyway.

So members of the Swedish Snus Enthusiasts Group, enjoy your new home: it sounds like LinkedIn did a great job for you. And you know you are all welcome here any time.

OK, OK! Here's MY Profile. I guess the mystery ends now........
