No longer supporting publishing to LinkedIn Groups via HubSpot Social

What is it:Screen Shot 2017-06-14 at 4.41.21 PM.png LinkedIn is removing API support for Groups. This means publishing to LinkedIn Groups from HubSpot will no longer be possible. This affects all Social Media Publishing tools. The only way to publish to groups, will be through the native LinkedIn desktop interface.

Sunset Date: 
Support for LinkedIn Group publishing will end on 6/30. 
Note: In advance of this, we will turn off the ability to schedule posts to LinkedIn groups after 6/30.

Who is impacted?
Any customers who publishes from HubSpot Social to a LinkedIn Group.

We had to make this change as a result of the updated LinkedIn API we use to publish to the platform. After 6/30 the only way to post to groups is through the native LinkedIn desktop interface. We still think LinkedIn is a great place to share content and reach prospects but their feed seems to be the best place for content and community. We’re always interested to find new ways to help our customers use LinkedIn to grow and are activley working with them to explore new possible integration points. 

What should you do now? 
Group posting now needs to happen through LinkedIn. We'd love to know if this is an issue for you or if you have other ways you want to use LinkedIn. Please share your ideas and vote on suggestions in our HubSpot Community.
