You're treating LinkedIn like Facebook
Connecting with people you don't personally know is "against the rules" of LinkedIn, and for the most part, social media outlets like Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram are the platforms for humble-bragging, posting pictures of you partying, maintaining friendships, and bi-weekly political tirades. Not LinkedIn. Overall, it's important to understand your LinkedIn profile is more of a career tool than a social outlet. Treat it as an extension of your job.
Ceren and most employers/recruiters agree: LinkedIn is rapidly becoming one of the easiest ways to link (!) a potential employer with a potential employee, and it's only getting bigger.
