LinkedIn does not retain or share AAUM data. It is used for one- time matching purposes only. Who uses the LinkedIn Group? Currently, AAUM verifies the alumni or student status of each request to join the group. How does this fit in with AAUMs social media strategy? AAUMs goal is to connect with alumni where they spend their time.
