Does having 500+ connections on LinkedIn make a difference?

Probably not! Does not having 500+ connections on LinkedIn make a difference? Possibly!

When I have sent an invitation to connect on LinkedIn one of the first things I check out is the number of existing connections the invitee has. If I see 500+ connections displayed, it signifies to me the member is at least trying to build a network of connections.

When I see single digits displayed for number of contacts and I really don’t know the individual, I am left wondering why they want to connect with me. Conversely, if I see the word LION after the individual’s name that turns me off that I won’t accept their invitation. I don’t want to be a number in somebody’s collection of contacts.
