I Have 289 Unanswered LinkedIn Invites

Careful: You don’t know where that’s been

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?

What do YOU think?

One clap, two clap, three clap, forty?

By clapping more or less, you can signal to us which stories really stand out.
