Anyone of you guys is subscribed to LinkedIn? I am subscribed but I am not sure how it works. In Facebook, if I receive a friend request from someone I don't know (or barely know) I would accept it and set them as acquaintances so that I don't have to share everything with them. Is there anything similar in LinkedIn? I received a "link" request from someone whom the only thing I know about is that he is Maltese. I am not sure if I should accept since I don't want to share too much. On the other hand I don't want to look snobbish or rude.

I don't have a LinkedIn but isn't it for business people and the sorts? Wouldn't it be better to have more contacts in your list?

But if I don't know the contact I don't know whether having such a person in my contact list would be an asset or a liability.

Hi Osprey,

 

I use linked in regularly for work and even got contacted for some job opporunities. Most people are legit and you can check by visiting their profile. Also the info you should have should be just information about your skills so there is nothing they can do with them.. It's a good site to expand your career network.
