LinkedIn is mainly a pool of professional resumes organized in a 
social graph of person-to-person connections. It gives you access to a local 
view in this network, up to 3 hops at least in my account.

A group provides a more general way to connect yourself to people other than 
person-to-person links, and can be used to filter searches in your personal 

One could use this for example to build professional relationships related 
to a certain topic without having to spam a public list with messages like 
"Hey I'm looking for a job, and by the way I know PLT Scheme."

But there are other uses too I bet.
