I got an email claiming to be from a nurse manager I work with to join her contacts on LinkedIn. I'm not on LinkedIn and I don't update much on my FaceBook page, FB is too intrusive. The message: The thing is, the email is from "Messages-Do Not Reply@LinkedIn.com" so clearly it's not a personal message. It asks me to confirm I know the nurse, which I do, and it so happens I actually did work for that facility just yesterday. But that could be a coincidence, unless she looked for me online or something. She does have my email address. Below the message is: I am reluctant to confirm anything knowing they will then add me to their system. It's not that I care, were this a true invitation I'd confirm I know her. But it smacks of FaceBook's tactic of telling me all the people it thinks I know, linking friends of friends to tell me to join their pages. My friends are not seeking me out, FB is. I will ask my fellow nurse what she knows about it, but I can't call her until Monday. Just wondered what experience others had with LinkedIn's marketing tactics?
