There are a couple of different ways to manage your LinkedIn
connections. They've even come up with names to describe them (I

I'm very conservative about building my network. I won't link to
anyone that I wouldn't recommend for a job. So this means that I
don't connect with strangers (I've rejected a couple of requests from
folks on my mailing lists), I won't connect to you if we just met once
at a conference or networking meeting, and I know I won't remember who
you are in three months. And I won't connect with former coworkers
that I either don't know very well, or couldn't enthusiastically
recommend that someone else hire. I also go through my list every now
and then and actually remove folks that I haven't spoken to in so long
that I've forgotten how we connected. The last thing I want to do is
call someone up and say "I don't know if you remember me, and I can't
remember how we're connected, but could you connect me with the hiring
manager at company X?"
But you may have a different strategy. I have at least a couple
people in my network with over 500 connections. They link to
everyone, figuring that any connection may come in handy later.
Pick you strategy, and then making these decisions is much easier.
