LinkedIn: You’ve reached or exceeded the maximum number of confirmed and pending groups.

LinkedIn is a business-oriented social networking service whose Headquarters is on Mountain View, CA, United States of America. Founded by Reid Hoffman, Konstantin Guericke, Jean-Luc Vaillant, Allen Blue, Eric Ly  in December 2002 and launched on May 5, 2003, it is mainly used for professional networking. In 2006, LinkedIn increased to 20 million viewers. Wikipedia

If you’re an active member of this popular networking platform, you might be familiar with the message displayed if you try to join more than 50 groups as ” You’ve reached or exceeded the maximum number of confirmed and pending groups”. Comparing to other Social Networking platform like Facebook, you can join as much group you want with admin’s permission and the  admin will not be other than general users like us. There is no way to add to the ability to be in more GROUPS, so the only option now is to leave ones you have no need for now. Also, if you have PENDING submissions to groups, you could click on that on your Group list and stop the pending action to free up a slot for another group. Today i’m going to help you on how to cancel your pending group request so that you may join at least 50 and take maximum benefit as a general user.

Lets start with step wise procedure as below;

Step 1: Move to “Interest” and from the drop-down select “Group” as shown below;

Step 3: On the top right of the returned display, You’ll see “Member” option.  After moving your cursor on Member option it’ll show you “Leave” buttton. Click on it and you’re done.

After leaving unwanted group you are instantly out of it and can then join more groups that are of high importance for you.

Though being a paid member / business account, the same message bother us time to time!  LinkedIn needs to up the amount of groups we can join to a higher number. I hope this post is helpful for you. Please share if you feel this might be useful to others and do let me know if i need to improve anything in future without any hesitation.

Thank you.
