I was just invited to join LinkedIn by...someone who's name sounds very familiar... but whom I cannot for the life of me think of where I might know them from...

It's a professional networking site, kind of a white-collar Facebook - it's got business news, and "groups", and a job search board.

 

You probably got that email because when your acquaintance joined, he/she checked the box that sends "join my Linkedin network" emails to everyone in his/her address book. I hate people who do that. You can ignore it, but be aware that you'll get a couple, three "reminder" emails over the next month or two. It's all automated.

I would love to join Linkedin, except for that whole "don't ever tell anyone who you work for on social network sites or personal websites, or don't wear our logo in public or overseas" gibberish they told us. Oh well.

If you told me, would you have to kill me? :mellow:

I get invites all the time from people I never heard of, usually recruiting for some MLM scheme. They love to recruit insurance agents.
