What is Your LinkedIn Connection Philosophy?

Are you an open networker?

We all have different philosophies about how we use LinkedIn, sometimes conscious philosophies and sometimes unconscious philosophies formed by our previous networking experiences.

As such, many of us fall on different areas of the spectrum from open to closed networkers.

"Open Networkers" go by many monikers on LinkedIn (i.e. LIONs, members of TopLinked, LinkedIn Open Networkers, Libertines, Leading International Open Networkers, to name a few) but basically members with this approach want to network with as many LinkedIn professionals as possible.
