Using LinkedIn as a network tool has both a positive and negative side. On the positive side, LinkedIn might connect you with individuals in your field that you would not normally have access to without LinkedIn. Outstanding, right? Well, like the famous cliche states, “Quality is better than quantity” rules true with LinkedIn. Developing a central core of quality individuals could be more successful than joining the “500 plus club” or power users. And if LinkedIn observes users “gaming the system,” the user could end up restricted from the site. To learn more about building a quality and strong LinkedIn network, watch J.T.
