Something to Think About When You Get a LinkedIn Connection Request From Someone You Don't Know

Share this content

Just read a very good article one of my connections posted to LinkedIn called Do You Make This Profile Damaging Mistake on LinkedIn?

The gist: there are lots of fake profiles out there. Don't weaken your own credibility by connecting to them.

Well worth reading.

Another great post and thanks for the article. I wanted to point you and other readers to a posting that just went up yesterday on View From My Shoes (, a blog by Kim Hogan @XCMkim about LinkedIn photos. Great reading.

Kim rocks.

Thanks, Joel (I kept writing Felix Ungar, confusing your name with someone else...LOL!). It is Joel, right, and not Felix?

Thanks Bill. It is Joel.

True story: Growing while that show was on the air, I was constantly asked "Any relation to Felix?" In fact, that was what I was called in marching band. On TV they spelled it Unger, but in the movie it was Ungar (the good spelling).

Before that, the Red Wings had a player named Gary Unger, so I used to get asked about that. Think they traded him to St. Louis and that ended that.
