LinkedIn is the business platform for social media. It’s your professional resume online and is more “grown up” than Facebook, Twitter, etc. I stay as professional as I can when using LinkedIn.
One of my favorite features is giving and getting recommendations. I love to recommend people and I do at every chance I get. Well this morning I received an email from a LinkedIn connection asking me for a recommendation. I didn’t recognize the name but headed on over to look.
It turns out I don’t know this person at all. Shame on me for accepting an incoming connection request from someone I don’t know but I like to accept all incoming requests should they have a question, etc. In the end I deleted the contact and got the inspiration to write this post and shoot the video.
Have you ever been asked for recommendations that weren’t merited?
