I've been lazy when sending new connection invites and was just clicking connect from the search page. This bypasses jumping through the usual "poodle hoops" but also breaks my own rule listed on my profile:
⚠ While I am open to networking, I am not an "open networker". If you send a connection invite, please include a note about why you would like to connect with me. Thank you.
I've been called out a couple of times for this now (in a humorous way) so I decided the best way to handle this was to modify that to read:
⚠ If you wish to send a connection invite, use the email address listed under "Advice for Contacting Mark" to connect.
Problem solved! ;) FTR, I usually only skip a note if I'm already connected to the person on another network (Twitter/G+) and figure they may recognize me from that platform. Still not a very good practice though... mea culpa.
On another note... when I went to update my profile, LI walked me through a detailed series of steps to update little info-bits I missed previously. I don't know when they added all that, it's probably been a couple of months since my last profile update so it must be kinda new, right?
In the attached image, you can see how they are offering a formatting tip for my summary. I think these "update helpers" should help folks new to the platform get everything "dialed in" just right. What do you think? Like it, hate it, didn't know it was there?
you guys knew this right?
