You can send a message to a group member without being connected and adjust your Member Message settings from within the group.

To send a free message directly to a group member:

  1. Move your cursor over Interests at the top of your homepage and select Groups.
  2. Click the group's name.
  3. Click the number of members in the group near the top right.
  4. Click the Send message link under the member's name.
    • This link will appear only if the member's settings allow them to be contacted by other group members.
  5. Create your message and click Send Message.

Note: You can also click on a member's picture from the Discussions page and then click Send message.

To view or adjust your Member Messages settings:

  1. Move your cursor over Interests at the top of your homepage and select Groups.
  2. Click the group's name.
  3. Click the Information and settings icon near the top right.
  4. Click Your Settings on the right.
  5. Next to Member Messages, check or uncheck the box next to "Allow member of this group to send me messages via LinkedIn."

Note: Contact information isn't shared when you use the Send message link through groups. Messages we send on your behalf only show the name on your account.
