I’m a senior financial executive that is taking an active role in building my network. I’m finding that LinkedIn is a good tool. It allows me to keep track of who I know and stay visible to my network.
From time to time (and it’s getting more frequent) I get requests to connect with someone I don’t know. They either say that I know them as a Friend or I have worked with them in the past. While it could be possible that I met them once, I don’t remember.
Should I accept a connection request on LinkedIn from someone I don’t know?

I understand where you are coming from. Being as active on social media as I am, I get requests constantly to join people’s networks. So I developed a LinkedIn Connection Policy that I stick to. You can read my LinkedIn Policy in my previous post.
To answer your question in standard accountingease: It depends. It ultimately depends on what you want to accomplish on LinkedIn.
What should your LinkedIn Connection Policy be?
