1095705_fire__fire_2 I received an email today with the subject “LinkedIn Group: Emergency Notification”. My immediate thought was, “What kind of emergency could there possibly be about a LinkedIn Group?” I mean, did the moderator have a heart attack? Is the forum on fire? I just couldn’t imagine what could possibly be so important that it merited an “emergency notification”.

And then I read the message:

Subject: LinkedIn Group: Emergency Notification

A friend, Kris Schroeder, asked me to help create awareness about her group on LinkedIn. I think the topics are interesting from both an individual and enterprise level. Here is a group summary in case you are interested:

We are using this group to discuss emergency notification and emergency preparedness. What are you doing to prepare for an emergency? When an emergency happens, how will you let people know that either you have been hurt or that you are OK in the midst of everything?

Best Regards,



I’m sure it’s a great group for those interested in the topic. Still, the unintended consequences are pretty funny.

  1. Wow, the subject line of the email is hysterical ! It’s one of those little things that I would never have thought about, then there it is. When you click “Share Group” the title by default is “LinkedIn Group” plus the name of the group, so in our case – LinkedIn Group Emergency Notification.

    I’m the administrator and there were no emergencies in the group. We still want to promote the group and discuss emergency notification. Join us!

    Thanks Scott & MIchelle.

  2. Unique way’s of exposure are sometimes planned and sometimes not. I would be a liar if I said I intentionally thought the result would have come to this, yet I am pleasantly surprised it has.

  3. 1. Click on the Groups link in the top menu.
    2. Find the group you want to change settings for. Under its “Go to” link, choose “Settings”.
    3. Under Digest Email, change it from daily to weekly.
    4. Save Changes.
