This question was asked today, and I think it warrants a nice simple tip. Since there is no built-in way to organize Groups, there are a few things you can do to add organized links.
CREATE GROUP SUB-TABS BASED ON BUILT-IN SORTS: First, you can add tabs with the following links. These are the links that you will find in the drop down menu from your main Group page, like here: http://jensocial.com/groups
These links will take your site members/visitors to the groups with most activity, latest activity, most members, and most recent.
Go to My Network/Settings/Tabs
Create new sub-tabs
Name your sub-tabs to suit you.
Use the following URLs for your sub-tab links.
1. Latest Activity /groups?sort=latestActivity 2. Most Active /groups?sort=mostActive 3. Most Members (most popular) /groups?sort=mostPopular 4. Most Recently Created /groups?sort=mostRecent CREATE GROUP SUB-TABS BASED ON SEARCH WORDS:
You could also create sub-tabs based on Group Searches. See image below.
For example, on JenSocial, I went to my main Groups page /groups: and searched on Ning. This was the resulting URL (without the quotes): "http://jensocial.com/groups/group/search?q=ning"
For each sub-tab (Group Link) you want to create, just change the word "ning" to your search word.
Go to your main Groups page, and enter a search word.
Use the results URL, for your sub-tab search string link.
After you select and test your searches:
Create your sub-tabs.
Name the sub-tabs appropriately. In my example I would probably name the sub-tab "Ning Groups".
Use the search URLs for your sub-tab links. For the example: "http://jensocial.com/groups/group/search?q=ning"
