LinkedIn Spam

Is anyone else seeing an increase in Orkut-like spam contact requests on LinkedIn? In the last few weeks I’ve gotten a number of requests from people I don’t know.
If I don’t know the person, and there isn’t a personal note, I’m ignoring them.

One thought on “LinkedIn Spam”

  1. LinkedIn just provided a mechanism for people to send out connect notices to a bunch of people at once if they used to work at the same company. I’ve got about ten connections that I’ve deferred because I didn’t really know the person, even though the name sounded familiar. Like you, I’ll only link if I actually know who it is.
