Don’t say yes to every LinkedIn request, said Quentin Fottrell in While “Facebook may have stretched the definition of ‘friend’ to include even your second cousin’s chiropractor,” be more selective when it comes to professional networking sites like LinkedIn. The site itself suggests “that connections should be limited to people one has actual connections to,” and experts say “other users of the site may judge you by the number and quality of your connections” because they “are seen as an endorsement and reflect on your professional reputation.” That means you should check out “would-be connections” to make sure their digital trail won’t reflect poorly on you. Avoid connecting with rival companies, and beware of LinkedIn spammers who collect connections to mine your data.
