Add hundreds of people you don't know -
Something to remember on LinkedIn: Its purpose is to
manage your professional identity and network with
professionals like yourself. Don’t go too crazy with
connection requests. Having connections with people
who are in your field is a great idea. This opens you up
to new ideas, knowledge and opportunities, but don’t
accept just anybody and don’t go adding just anybody.
It has little to do with the quantity of your connections
and more to do with quality.
