I am looking for a group that shares and engages with each others content in real time.

Ideally I'd like groups that focus on LinkedIn/ Instagram. Not too much of a fan of Facebook.

If you know of such a group please let me know in the comments.

If not, who would be interested in creating a whatsapp/ telegram group in order to support each other's social content creation on a regular basis?

Let me know!

Rant: Joined a Big4 consulting team having spent 6 years in the industry. I was brought to work on a specific sector due to my skills and knowledge but keep getting put in all sorts of engagements other than the ones I was hired for. Not to mention IT issues, poor onboarding, no coach assigned yet, etc. I have started thinking I made a mistake.
