donhornsby's curator insight, December 22, 2014 10:09 AM

(From the article): The point of LinkedIn isn’t to amass a large number of connections that you ignore. The true value of your network is in the strength of the relationships you build with individual connections. It can feel good to connect with people, but what good are connections, really, if you never engage with them?

 

As is the case with real-world relationships, LinkedIn connections should be nurtured over time with regular engagement. And there are plenty of opportunities to stay in touch, and it can be as simple as commenting on a status update or clicking “like” on a work anniversary notification.
