One of my original nine small moral dilemmas number was:
5) A current supplier asks to connect with you via Linkedin
Recently and somewhat oddly a software supplier kept insisting that it was to my benefit to be linked to them. Apparently I would become part of their ‘community’ and I would then be able to directly contact their other customers to compare notes with them about this supplier.
This might well be true but I concluded that if a supplier was very keen on me doing something then it was probably really for their benefit and not mine.
Just call me cynical but I have not linked with them.
