There are too many groups in Linkedin and some of them are dead groups. One way to make your groups active is to send out special invitation to group members to invite them to give some opinions to your discussons.

LinkedIn's 187 million members are business people. There are no tweens, teenagers or grampa's chatting about what they had for lunch. It's about 187 million business people discussing business. There are 1 million new members per week joining LinkedIn and groups are a big part of that.
Having a LinkedIn profile or business page is not an option anymore. I find that most of the members act in a very professional manner. LinkedIn Today, which is their 'News" section is also very valuable.
Starting a group takes time and effort, once you hit the 500 memers mark the group will start to get traction on it's own. Some groups have thousands of people joining every week, this of course depends on the topic and who you are trying to attract. Be sure to have a few discussions already posted before you start to invite people to your group. You are only allowed to join 50 groups.
I have a bit of a niche group that I would like to share with you. It is 2 years old, has a 2,000 plus members, which is not a lot of members but the quality of the members is extremely high. Many of the members depend on the group to get all of the news regarding the Daily Deal Industry!
LinkedIn Group "Daily Deal industry" This group is mostly CEO's and key management of Daily Deal companies and other technology start-ups from around the world.
