I get a lot of questions about using LinkedIn. For some of them, the answer is obvious. Should you put up a profile picture? Yes, of course. Some questions, however, have no definite answer.
Bear with me, as I try to explain some of the tricky situations you might encounter while using LinkedIn:
Is it a good idea to accept all invitations to connect on LinkedIn? If not, what criteria should be followed?
LinkedIn is business networking on steroids. Imagine going to a conference and receiving fifty business cards in 10 minutes, that’s how crazy it can get. But like typical networking events, some of the LinkedIn invites you receive will be of no interest to you.
Don’t accept all invites you get. Connect with a purpose.
