Linked In takes on Yahoo AND Google (Groups)

From The Linked in Email

“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.)
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. ”

This pitches LI and its 25 million members squarely into the Google groups, Yahoo Groups , List Groups category.
The additional server costs would be managed by the infusion of private equity earlier this year.
Competition just grew hotter.Web 2.0 just became cooler.

And the consumer. He is loving it.
