Till about a couple of years ago, LinkedIn profiles with 500+ connections impressed me immensely. With that humongous network/reach at their disposal, they’d have a world of opportunities on a platter. I checked their profile to see what made them popular or ‘connection-worthy’. I secretly emulated their style, their profiles, etc.
Last weekend, I pruned my contact list and ended-up removing about 100 connections and quite a few of groups with the intent to eventually settle at a number below 250, or better still, log out completely.
