Hi all,

 

I’ve found LinkedIn to be a good place to collaborate, share, question, and answer topics of interest in the professional arena.  Metrics is no exception.  But, over the last year or so, the groups have been inundated with promotional ads disguised as discussion posts.  You can scroll through 20 posts and not find a legitimate discussion topic/post.  The metrics groups I used to recommend to others have been overrun by spammers.  In response, I of course, started a discussion about the problem.  The best advice I received in the discussion was to have either a closed group or a well-managed open group. 

 

So, I have created a new LinkedIn Group, specifically for metrics discussions: “Analytics, Metrics, and Data, oh my!”

If you want to participate in discussions on metrics and avoid the spam, please join.  I promise to police it diligently.

Please consider the environment when considering printing emails.  I mean, I’m flattered that you would think this is worthy of printing and pasting into your scrap book.  But wait, you weren’t going to do that, were you?  You were going to print (probably single sided, multiple pages) this and make a note or two and then put it on your desk.  It would get lost with the other unnecessary printouts you’ve made and eventually it would be tossed in the trash when you clean up your office!  First of all – toss it in the recycle bin not the trash!  Better yet, don’t print it!  I appreciate the compliment, but nothing in this email is worth the paper or ink – really.  DON’T PRINT THIS!  Call me instead, and we can chat.  Thanks.

Martin,

Are you saying that this Linkedin Group is intended to replace this listserv?

Q:  “Are you saying that this Linkedin Group is intended to replace this listserv?”

 

A:  “DEFINITELY NOT!”

 

Thanks for the opportunity to clarify,

 

It is intended to “replace” the linkedIn groups which have become overridden with promotions.  It is just an invite for those who use LinkedIn groups.

Please consider the environment when considering printing emails.  But, since you’re obviously an email power user, I guess I don’t need to tell you not to print this email.  I mean we’re having a meaningful back and forth, aren’t we?  I’m proud of you and thank you for safeguarding our environment for the future generations… J
