A little while ago LinkedIn changed the way they send recommendation requests and I’m aware that people are getting in a pickle. So this post is a simple step by step guide to the process of responding to a recommendation request by one of your connections.
I noticed that the busier I got the less I was following my own philosophy of building relationships on twitter, so I made a decision that for 2 weeks I would follow back every real tweeter that followed me and I would start a conversation with an open question (I did sociology degree so I know about these things!).
