5 Dos and Don’ts with LinkedIn

This morning a colleague sent me this article from CIO magazine on LinkedIn Etiquette.  The most important point I believe it makes is about being careful with who you put on your contact list.  People mistakenly think that LinkedIn is like Facebook or Twitter in terms of being a popularity contest, so link up with others left and right so that their contact list becomes huge and often filled with strangers.  Aas this article points out:

LinkedIn firmly believes you should know your contacts before deciding to add them as a connection. They say they have designed the service with that philosophy in mind. Connections, they argue, are a reflection of you professionally. If you don’t know who they are, it can reflect poorly on you when people peruse your connection list.
