Your LinkedIn Network is Useless if…

I try to NEVER share the number of contacts I have because some people use the number to erroneously judge the value or success of my strategy.  So, take that number with a grain of salt.  A few things I wanted to point out:

  • 3.3k first degree connections means that in my first, second and third degrees I have “access” to almost 15M people.  That’s interesting math… and my supposed reach is 20% of all of LI’s network.
  • In the last 4 days (I wrote this post yesterday :p) I’ve had over 80k new people in my network… that’s pretty amazing growth!

What does all of this mean?  How does it bring me any value?

Back to the title of the post:

Your [My] LinkedIn network is USELESS if I… DON’T DO ANYTHING WITH IT!

What are YOU doing with your account/network?
