LinkedIn – Blank Invites to Connect …………why?
[tweetmeme source=”GaryFranklin”] Follow @garyfranklin
I must get between 10 and 20 invitations to connect with people I don’t know each week on LinkedIn. Many of them come from recruitment agencies. I am okay with this; after all it is what LinkedIn is for.
What I don’t understand however is why nearly all of them have no message in them. They offer no reason or qualification why the connection is relevant to me or to them for that matter. I can make assumptions but………………..
It doesn’t take more than a few seconds to write a quick note. LinkedIn even makes it straight forward by limiting the number of words for those literarily challenged.
Is there a logical reason for this? Am I missing something? Lazy, rude and spam?
