LinkedIn Mistakes

I’m still keeping an open mind about LinkedIn. I continue to accept invitations from people who contact me (including many complete strangers); but I’m not really crazy about the user interface. LinkedIn certainly has a lot of potential and I’ve already used it to connect with professionals I would never have met (e.g. an executive search firm that contacted me wanting to do business together and even an outsourcing professional in India who seems to know a lot about legal process outsourcing.)

Here are a few things to avoid when using LinkedIn. I’m not sure all of them would have made my top 10 list, but they are all worth mentioning. Not on the list is the caveat that you should be selective about accepting invititations to connect.
