Q. I keep getting invitations to connect on LinkedIn from people I don’t know. Should I accept those?

A. Having as large a network on LinkedIn as possible is important, but it’s equally important to have quality connections on LinkedIn. If this person you don’t know asked you to introduce them to somebody you do know, would you be willing to facilitate that introduction? If you wanted to meet with somebody who was a second degree connection would you be willing to ask somebody you don’t know to connect you? Would you like to start a conversation with these people to possibly get to know them virtually and expand your networks that way? There is no single right answer, but how you answer those questions may help you decide how you would like to manage your network of connections on LinkedIn.
