  1. Toddler So confused about linkedin. I've been told to send out invitations to everyone in my address book since you never know when a connection might turn out to be useful. I was told...(more) 46 min ago (9 replies)
    by reputable-seeming people that this was standard, and in fact a key aspect of how linkedin worked But when I went to specifically invite a friend (who wasn't in my email directory), I got this warning message: "Connecting to someone on LinkedIn implies that you know them well:

    They’ll have access to people you know
    Others may ask you about them and vice versa
    You’ll get updates on their activity
    LinkedIn lets you invite colleagues, classmates, friends and business partners without entering their email addresses.
    However, recipients can indicate that they don’t know you. If they do, you’ll be asked to enter an email address with each future invitation.
