LinkedIn - Oops, Sorry
Some of you may have received and invitation from me to join LinkedIn. I was attempting to integrate my gmail account into my profile and get some of my business contacts from there to be LinkedIn with me. Something went wrong however, so many of you received an invitation to join even though you are not already on there at the moment. It was NOT my intent to invite you, although I don't mind it if you do want to connect of course.
I always try to be intentional about that kind of thing, and NEVER send out blanket requests to everybody on my email list. I find that offensive when people do that, so I would NEVER choose to do so on purpose.
I apologize to any authors, publishers, or commenters on this blog that mistakenly received an invitation. I am very sorry for my mistake.Posted by John on May 9, 2008 08:57 AM | Posted to Blogging
