I Have 289 Unanswered LinkedIn Invites
So, am I a LinkedIn Snob?
Over the last 18 years or so that I have been on LinkedIN, I have always held one philosophy:
I only connect to people I actually know.
So invites just sit there… unanswered. For years. Like connection invite purgatory.
The idea is that I should be able to know WHY I am connected to each of my connections there.
That my “network” becomes more valuable if I am very cautious about who I connect to… and that I can trace each connection back to a meaningful interaction of some sort.
But with the changes to the platform (and the prevalence of twitter, insta and other social apps that value sharing > community, is this the wrong way to think about it?
