6 Reasons Why I Won’t Add You On LinkedIn

LinkedIn profile

I’m quite an active user on LinkedIn and find it very useful to connect with other leaders in my industry. It’s also a great place to get to know another person on a professional basis.

Your LinkedIn profile is like your online resume, and when used well, can tell other professionals who you are, your qualifications, what you’ve achieved so far, how well connected you are and even how you are perceived by others in your industry.

On the other hand, a poorly written profile can give a terrible impression because it shows how little you care about making an impression on others.

So when I see these 6 mistakes people make on their LinkedIn profiles, it really turns me off and makes me wonder why they bother connecting with me at all.

Here are 6 reasons why I will not add you on LinkedIn.

1. Your Social Network Accounts Can Be Deleted Anytime

If you’ve built up thousands of Facebook fans and Twitter followers, you account can be deleted or suspended anytime for violating their ever-changing terms of service. Even well known names in social media have had their Facebook accounts deleted, so no one is immune.

This is probably the most important reason why you should consider your social network accounts more as an outreach post than the place where you conduct your business transactions.
