Subtitles section Play video Print subtitles adding connections is a big part of using linked in. But keep in mind that this is where linked in really differs from other social networks. On a site like Facebook, you might add everyone you've ever met. But doing that on LinkedIn can come off a za bit insincere, as if you're just networking for its own sake. Instead of truly building your professional network before you add a connection on LinkedIn, ask yourself. Would this person discuss a job with me or recommend me to an employer? If the answer is yes, then it may be a good idea to add that person as a connection toe Add connections on LinkedIn. Select my network at the top of the screen and you'll find a list of people that you may know. If you see someone you'd like to connect with, you can click connect. You can also visit their profile and connect there. A dialog box will appear, and you can attach a personal message to your invitation if you like. We recommend including a message with every connection request so the person knows who you are and why you want to connect. Once your messages finished, click done, you'll be able to see your total number of connections in the top left corner of the my network page. While some people believe that your linked in profile is on, Lee is good is the number of your connections. The quality of your connections is more valuable than the quantity. Having 50 strong connections can do much more for your career than 200 connections that you don't know very well. That's just something to consider as you find and add people on LinkedIn.
