Over the last couple of days I had a discussion per e-mail over the fact that I do not accept people to be a contact if they hide their contacts for me. We respect each others opinions on this but I did want to take the time to write about this.
The facts. I am on Linkedin and have a growing number of business contacts. Partly business partners and partly people I know from the open source community. In my opinion people building a network should consider to share the people they know. It’s part of the idea of building a social or business network.
I took a closer look at my list and found that some people have adjusted their setting and are not showing contact anymore. This worries me. I even wonder if these people should use business networks like Linkedin.
Maybe some of you can start a discussion on this and let me know where I can read it?
