I've come across the concept of "LinkedIn LION" a few days ago (I know the term exists since 2008 or something... sorry!) and I thought it might be a good way to grow my network on LinkedIn.
Basically, LinkedIn LIONS accept everyone inviting them to be their LinkedIn connection (just like accepting every friend request on FaceBook).
LION means LinkedIn Open Networker.
Here's a thread about it: http://www.linkedin-makeover.com/201...linkedin-lion/
But I'm not sure yet if I should add LIONS or not to my network. Even if they are LIONS AND part of my target audience, doesn't that look like a Twitter "follow me and I'll follow you back"? Do these people actually engage with you? After all, I'm looking for new connections there, and I know staying silent doesn't help in business.
So, what do you guys think? Any LIONS out there?
