Declining vs ignoring in professional social networks

by Laurent François

Funny world: whereas we’re all pushed to connect, within 5 or 6 degrees of separation, saying “no I don’t want” does not seem to be natural at all.

I’ve said “I decline” for the 4th time on Viadeo to a Yes Man-guy, named David L. He should know, if he reads me, that we have nothing to share.

So what? Viadeo allows users to say No, whereas LinkedIn is more into “Ignoring“.

It’s not innocent: accepting the idea to refuse a contact, (and notify him), is highly different from looking down and keep walking. It’s a society issue!

Where’s the relationship if it’s only Yes-Based?
