Wanting to Connect but wasting my Time!!
I get a lot of requests to connect on various social sites. I am pretty picky about who I accept. That said I will never understand why anyone would take the time to send a connection request with no message and worse with a profile that says nothing, thus wasting my time.
In Facebook, if you send me a request and your profile says nothing, no where you work, where you live, etc I am not accepting.
In Linkedin, if you send a connection request and your profile is minimal to nothing I will not accept. If your profile has s stock picture that matches many other LI profiles I will not accept it. If your picture can be found in an image search and matches someone else, I am not accepting. Also, if your request is obviously the prelude to a sales connection, specifically trying to sell me help with my financial portfolio I am not accepting.
In Twitter, if your Twitter profile is sparse I will not accept. If you have a political type of profile I will not accept it. If your picture belongs on an x-rated site I will not accept it.
I could go on and on with every social site but the reality is if you want to connect with me you need these things
A robust profile
No signs of being a fake profile
No signs of this being nothing more than sales connection
No Political angst
And no offensive pictures or statements.
That’s not asking too much for a connection to be real, and be mutual and be respectful. That is all I want, that is all anyone wants.
