Where we all take part in forest planning
Joining a group is a great way to have a conversation with people who have similar professional interests, or to get project or team work done in a collaborative work environment.
If you work on a team that makes extensive use of email, it might prove more efficient to move those email conversations into a threaded group discussion. Threaded discussions place all replies in one central location (instead of scattered across your inbox in multiple messages) and creates a logical flow that is conversational and inviting.
To join an existing group, go to the Groups tab. You can browse existing groups by most active, or sort them by latest activity, most members, or latest created. Just choose your option from the "Sort by" menu.
Once you find an interesting group, click on its title. If the group is public, there will be a link in the top right of the page to join the group. If the group is private, you can apply to join from the group's page
