The challenges I've experienced with accepting "all" conneciton requests include:
- LinkedIn "lions" that constantly fill your alerts with erroneous flags and your stream with cat images
- Pitch-happy sales people who don't "get" that your acceptance of their connect request isn't an opt-in approval to spam you with email, phone or 'in"messages
- People who speak different languages (my fauly, not theirs)
There's also a school of thought that believes humans can only effectively handle a couple hundred relationships before the interactions become meaningless. Myself, I'm not so much in that camp, while at the same time, I do acknowledge that the quality of my interactions is much higher with "regulars".
May 8 Posted 10 months ago I'm reasonably confident that the people who ask to connect with me on LinkedIn are real people, so I'm not very selective. The only people who I don't connect with are people I know from the real world that I really don't want to have anything to do with anymore. But my own LinkedIn network is fairly small (in fact, it's pathetically small) -- I know executives with much larger networks who complain that a fair number of requests are from fake personas. So perhaps one needs to be more selective as one's ostensible influence grows.
