Jason Alba at “I’m on LinkedIn now what” has posted a great post on canned invitation requests. The invitation is hilarious because:
1. The person in their invitation seems to be trying to sell Jason on what a great tool LinkedIn
2. Jason has already released a book on LinkedIn
Talk about not even taking the time to read a profile before blasting off an invitation. The moral of the stroy is if you are going to invite somone to connect, especially if you don’t know them, take the time to learn enough to personalize the invitation.
