Why is accepting a connection request on LinkedIn such an involved process? Every time I accept a connection request I have to go through 2-3 pages of people I know and may want to inundate with connection requests! So much for deliberate connections. It seems to be all about spamming people and artificially expanding connections.
I feel like I use LinkedIn begrudgingly these days. It is where business people tend to want to connect but groups and other fora seem to have become opportunities to spam everyone with some or other deal. It all seems to be a lot of LinkedIn spam. It reminds me of Benjamin Smith’s post on the Observer last week:
Here’s Why I Don’t Write on LinkedIn and Why You Shouldn’t Either https://t.co/m6rJT7DQMF

I’m sure there is still much value in LinkedIn but my experience of it is increasingly negative. I basically use it because I may trip over the value one day and unearth the sparkling opportunities concealed under the muck.
