Today I have 16 people that want to connect with me in LinkedIN …
and I will not connect with (a lot of) them !
Yes, yes, yes
I’m not crazy, just I want use linkedIN as a business social network. I don’t want wake up in the morning and write in LinkedIN
“ehi good morning guys” only because someone (ie FaceBook) ask to me
“what’s on your mind?”
I don’t want 1500 contacts in LinkedIN that I really don’t know!
My contacts in LinkedIN are people that I really know or that I meet in business project ideas.
I don’t want give my LinkedIN connection to people that I had never meet or that I don’t know.
So I suggest to you don’t send to me a LinkedIN invitation if you dont know me !
If you want to contact me (and you don’t know me) you have other channels … and you can find it in my public LinkedIN profile: professional mail, twitter account, skype name … it is not difficult to contact me … isn’t it? :-)
Usually I send a “I don’t know” message to LinkedIN invitation if “I don’t know” … complex deductive reasoning required to me to take this decision :-)
… but this is a problem for you!
First: in the future you can not re-invite me another time
Second: if you receive an excessive number of “I don’t know this person” responses, you could be restricted from sending invitations to connect to others ! (see help linkedin for “I don’t know” and also for the “LinkedIN restriction” )
I don’t know exactly what are happening in LinkedIN, but it’s a few days that my un-know people invitations are growing too fast.
I don’t know if they are really interested in something about me and my businesses or only if “LinkedIN Community” decided to take a strong marketing approach :-).
I will send to them this post so they will understand better why I have not accepted their LinkedIN invitation.
“Reply” don’t signal you as a “spammer” to linkedIN … so you will have NO restriction from them.
Anyway don’t get angry with me about the reason I haven’t accepted your invitation if I don’t know you … simply use other way to contact me next first time … (my public LinkedIN profile has all the information :-) )
Give it time !
PS: If you have same problem feel free to send this post to your un-know people that sent to you a LinkedIN invitation …
give them a second chance before click “I don’t know” :-)
… maybe they don’t know all these things about LinkedIN and they could read it through this post and through the links to the LinkedIN help services that I have attached.
