LinkedIn will soon be deprecating its API for Groups, which impacts all integration partners, including Hootsuite.
As a result, as of June 30th, 2017, LinkedIn Groups will no longer be supported in the Hootsuite dashboard.
What this means for Hootsuite customers:
- On June 30th, Group streams will stop populating with data, and Hootsuite will not post to Groups. You can delete your empty streams and Groups at that time, but Group streams and social networks will be removed from all Hootsuite dashboards at a later date.
- Messages scheduled to post to a Group on or after June 30th will fail to send. To save your content, export your scheduled or past scheduled messages.
- As of today, June 1st, it is no longer possible to add a LinkedIn Group to the Hootsuite dashboard.
Linkedin profiles and Company Pages will continue to function as normal in Hootsuite, and Groups can still be accessed in LinkedIn natively.
