Posting to groups on linked inPresentation Transcript
Posting in a group in which you are a member
Go back to your “Groups” page by finding the navigation bar at the top of the page and hovering over groups. From the drop down list that appears, select “Your Groups.” Alternately, you can also hover over “Groups” in your navigation bar and select the group that you want to post in. This list only shows groups in which you are an approved member. As you can see, I have one full-fledged membership, and that is for “Emporia State University Graduate School.”
Once I click on the link for the group that I want, I am directed here, to the group's home page. Here, I can begin to start posting information. I do so by typing my link, question, or comment into the text box and press share. Please note that these are public comments that all of the members of the group can see, so make the discussions inclusive and interesting to all members.
Another way to be active in the group is to interact with the postings of other people. Liking a comment engages you with another person's comments. It shows other people (and the responder) your appreciation of the post by making a public note of your appreciation
Clicking on “Comment” provides you with a text box with which to respond. Next, select “Add Comment” to send. Note the ticked box that allows you to be updated on the discussion via e-mail. Also note that this is a public reply that will be see by all in the group.
To reply privately (meaning that the rest of the group is not privy to your message), select “More” and then select “Reply Privately.” Of course, you also have the option of reporting this post to the site's administrators, which probably should be done in this case.
This small tutorial should provide you with the ability to
