who I do know but are not on my email contact list? Or is it I'm on their email contact list. The Yahoo email I use is linked to another primaryYahoo email account. Is that why?

Analytics. My boss asked me this the other day. No offense to you but it surprises me that people don't get this. It's like the most basic part of social media.

You worked at Bro Company. Johnny worked at Bro Company and you guys are in the same circle. Sally worked at Bro Company and is not in your circle. LinkedIn asks if you know Sally and coincidentally, you do. It goes much deeper then that sometimes, but it is all based on what you have share with LinkedIn.

Yea I replied back but they dont seem to care!!!!! -- THEY KEEP SENDING THIER STUPID REMINDERS!!!!!!! (I have said some pretty bold stuff also)

One time some idiot INVITED ME TO FACEBOOK... Boy was I pissed........ I do whatever I can to avoid that spying trash site!!!!!

They kept sending me "Reminders" that someone invited me to facebook..... After about 4 or 5 emails I blew up and replied saying "Stop emailing me.... I WILL NOT EVER JOIN YOUR CIA/INFO COLLECTING WEBSITE AND I FEEL BAD FOR ALL THE PEOPLE YOU HAVE IN YOUR CLUTCHES THERE"

They havent emailed since!!!!!!! (If they do the same thing will be said)

Never seen the benefit of that site so when it started to look more and more like Fartbook plus all the annoying surveys I was getting about people in my circle to be rated on their skills, I deleted my account.
Never missed it.

Much like most any social web site that starts of good, useful and/or interesting yet turns into sh.t eventually, LinkedIn was no exception.

Thumbs down *

I cant stand it when SHEEPLE always preach to ya about NOT HAVING A FACEBOOK ACCOUNT,its sickening!!

"You dont know what your missing" -- OH YES I DO!!!!!! -- Having a profile built on me,my info collected and given to who knows who!!


Sheeple have been so conditioned not to care about THIERS OR ANYONE ELSE'S privacy!! (And we are all @ risk when amoung them!!)

I use Gmail and get notifications from LinkedIn all the time. They appear in my "Promotions" folder. I could easily block the messages and stop them from being sent, but haven't done so yet. I never recognize any of the names that are suggested by the LinkedIn folks. I just scan through the list of names and delete the notifictions.
