I keep invites from people I don’t know, they’re often even in the same industry as I am.
Should I be wary, or should I just accept all?July 20, 2015 12:11 am at 12:11 am #1093858
Ouch that came out a little jumbled, let’s try again.
I keep getting invites from people I don’t know, they’re often not even in the same industry as I am.
Should I be wary, or is it good to have as many connections as possible?July 20, 2015 12:18 am at 12:18 am #1093859
What’s there to be wary of? Is there a downside to accepting a connection?July 20, 2015 12:36 am at 12:36 am #1093860
Not sure they say you should be careful on other social networks but LinkedIn is less personal. I was if there is anything to be wary of.July 20, 2015 12:47 am at 12:47 am #1093861
LinkedIn isn’t a social network similar to Facebook.July 20, 2015 2:08 am at 2:08 am #1093862
There are people who use Linkedin to sell you Spam serviced.
I find linkedin to be very useful in finding contacts. However I only accept connection if its either someone I know or someone in the same field as me.
Some people just seem to send out linkedin requests because Linkedin tells them toJuly 20, 2015 10:32 pm at 10:32 pm #1093863
The purpose if Linkedin is to be able to grow your career by increasing your network of professional contacts, not to network with people that you know.July 21, 2015 12:23 am at 12:23 am #1093864

Could there be a more epitomic Joseph quote?July 21, 2015 1:01 am at 1:01 am #1093865
squeak, one of my contacts wishes to offer you a position. It is salaried 55% above your current pay. You will be receiving a 20K signing bonus, transportation vouchers, a 401(k) with a dollar to dollar match for the first six percent, 100% paid health and dental and a corner office.July 21, 2015 2:42 am at 2:42 am #1093866
I would be wary of providing info to strangers. I wouldn’t connect with strangers if it gave them access to info you already dont make public in your profile.July 28, 2015 10:53 pm at 10:53 pm #1093867
Its safe to connect with anyone. They dont have access do any of your info. Just make sure you remove your email from your profile.August 19, 2019 6:44 pm at 6:44 pm #1776607
Does It Seem Linkedin Has Turned Into the Facebook of Adults? Especially now with many Video Posts. I see even Heimish and Chassidish men and women posting and video posting on LInkedin often posting many times each day. There are even such “Parnassa Needed” posts as reflections on family life. Is this a Problem? Including Nashim making innocently many video posts on the internet?August 19, 2019 8:21 pm at 8:21 pm #1776659
LinkedIn has evolved as the default networking app used by the vast majority of professionals for both job search and career growth enhancement. If “work” or “career growth” are against your hashkafah, than obviously you should add the LinkedIn URL to your “blocked list”.August 19, 2019 11:01 pm at 11:01 pm #1776704
I useto look at linkedin as just a networking event buy now i see people posting or commenting on posts through out the day including heimish and chassidish as well as anyone men and women including many videos on internet and so often not exactly parnassa related.August 20, 2019 9:07 am at 9:07 am #1776819
I agree. LinkedIn has basically become another Facebook. The only people who might actually benefit from using it are entrepreneurs. Otherwise, it’s a waste of time, other than simply having an account with your current career /education info, in case you’re in the job market, so people see you’re a real person.August 20, 2019 9:08 am at 9:08 am #1776803
Where as in some communities in papers dont show womens faces in linkedin from heimish to goyish women post videos of themselves.August 20, 2019 12:02 pm at 12:02 pm #1776908
In reply to the OP from years ago, but still a relevant question: IIRC some of the relatively recent Russian spying was facilitated by fake accounts/people being linked on LinkedIn to real, high profile people. Simply being linked lends some false legitimacy, so now other people may trust the fake account, which seems to be from a real, well connected business person. I don’t remember the exact details, so whoever has the time can to their own research and post here.
Bottom line answer, yes be wary.August 23, 2019 12:48 pm at 12:48 pm #1778590
For example I just saw a video post by a Heimish man with a beard jogging with a Linkedin connection, who from the video was a lady jogging with him in jogging outfit. Is it just me or is this not kosher?August 23, 2019 12:49 pm at 12:49 pm #1778586
As an example I just saw a video post on LInkedin by a Heimish looking man with a big beard while he is jogging in the park with a fellow Linkedin Female connection who is dressed in legging pants.
I am sure YAted Neeman would not publish the photo. (is it just me or are these not ideal – especially to post to the internet?)
