LinkedIn groups are a learning place for beginners, a commonplace to share ideas, and build connections that can help you land your dream job or transition to a new job. It is a place where people with similar interests share insights and experiences by sharing research papers, talking about new technology, sharing tutorials, asking questions related to a problem, and taking part in community lead events. These groups are monitored by admins and moderators to provide you with spam-free content related to data science, machine learning, big data, AI, IoT, and BI

Why join? If you have too many people in your connection, you get feeds from all of them. Most of the time the content is not related to what you are looking for. I feel overwhelmed and end up wasting 10 minutes of constant scrolling. The LinkedIn groups are pretty much clean. If you see the advertisement, it will be related to your topic. 

The machine learning/data science groups filter out all the noise for you to consume the best possible content. You get to learn about new technologies and share your knowledge with other group members. In short, beginners, enthusiasts, and experts are growing together by interacting with each other. 

The list below contains the top 18 groups based on number of members. Some of the groups are hard to get in. It can take up to a month before group administrators let you in. The majority of the groups I have mentioned are highly moderated so you won't see spam posts, self-promotions, advertisements, or off-topic discussions


Furthermore, if you are a small content writer like me, groups provide you with growth opportunities. Instead of limiting myself to a few hundred followers, I can show my work to hundreds of thousands of professionals and get feedback. Other than that, I read blogs shared by other members and learn about new technologies and Python packages. LinkedIn groups have restored my faith on social media platforms.
