RE: Join my network on LinkedIn

'LinkedIn: Invitations Received' screen snap
This is a quandary for me. I try to keep my LinkedIn network literally to people I know and have worked with or with whose work I am familiar. From what I can see, you seem like an excellent person to know, I’m flattered that you enjoy my posts on that list, and I appreciate your providing that context since so many invitations I get have robogreetings on them.
I couldn’t bring myself to click the “I don’t know Jack…” button, but since I take LinkedIn literally (I want to be able to recommend people from my own direct experience) I also don’t feel right accepting your invitation.
I hope you understand.

    interesting… I would have used that amount of time and energy to get to know the person, since they sounded like worth getting to know.

    Yeah, I totally hold my Linked-In network to a higher standard. Facebook friends? Sure.. yeah.. whatever. Myspace? If you insist. But LinkedIn? I gotta at least remember you…
