Everyone in business has to do an element of networking. A great way to network is by using LinkedIn, and making new connections through it has become a wonderful way to generate new business and meet more prospective clients. However, social media is not about the number of connections you have, but about the quality of your connections with those people. When you go to a networking event, you wouldn’t walk up to someone, thrust your business card in their hand, and ask them to give you a call without explaining who you were, and why they should call you would you? Neither should you use the same bad manners when inviting someone to connect with you on LinkedIn.
