LinkedIn scammers and spammers note there’s a new rule that’s finally going to eliminate annoying spammy emails – individuals can only send 100 invites per week.
LinkedIn recently started cracking down on the number of invites you can send out per week to just 100.
Before this time, the max number of invites you could send was dependent on an algorithm of your invite acceptance rate combined with some account activity measures.
This limitation will greatly reduce the number of spammy accounts running on the platform.
When you reach the weekly invite limit, you’ll receive a warning note similar to this:
“You’ve reached the weekly invitation limit. Connections benefit you more when you know them personally, so we have weekly limits to encourage better networks.
For people you don’t know, you can follow them to see their posts or send an InMail instead. If you’d still like to send an invitation, please try again next week.”
In my opinion, no one be sending that many LinkedIn connection requests per week. While having a lot of LinkedIn connections is good – it’s always about the quality of them. And always be strategic in who you invite into your network and how you interact on LinkedIn – this is all part of your personal brand. And always remember that no one likes to be spammed.
