What if you started treating Linkedin like the dating app Tinder? Tinder allows users to like (swipe right) or dislike (swipe left) other users, and allows users to chat if both parties liked each other in the app. LinkedIn can be like a Business Dating app where people are more than just a pretty face.
Relationships take time, commitment and a plan. You need to approach LinkedIn connections as if you are meeting and reacting to someone in person. It's easy to hide behind a screen and a profile (like people do on dating apps), but it can come back to haunt you if you are not forthright!
You want to make sure you are treating people like you would do a relationship in any other part of your life…

- Research people before connecting
- Make your profile is Swipe Stopping – Expect people to research you
In this episode, I will explore that in more detail by using actual blog post titles form the Tinder website. We can all learn how to start grow and maintain better relationships online.
