  • Good advice. I've been using these same tips for some time but learned a few more. Especially good advice for someone just getting started into Linked In.

  • I would agree with 'gadeyne' about the email in the name field. Its just bad practice and there are so many other ways to encourage people to connect that you not do it. For those who are on a mission to be 'the most connected' have at it. But for the majority of people using social media, its about the quality of your connections not how many. Although size of a network affects what you may want to do, this technique should never be part of a LinkedIn 101 series with people just starting out. There is no better way to sour people on social media usage for business than to unknowingly get yourself kicked on LinkedIn.
