LinkedIn limits: 30,000 connections and 3,000 invitations
There is a ceiling limit on the number of connections you can have in your LinkedIn Profile of 30,000. I couldn’t image many people ‘knowing’ that many people. Once you reach this limit LinkedIn will not allow you to connect with any other users.
Another limit on LinkedIn is that you are limited to send out only 3000 invitations to connect.
Why a limit on LinkedIn invitations?
I suspect it’s to stop users going out and sending invitations to anyone and everyone in the hope of building a huge network on LinkedIn. To prevent abuse from people who think quantity trumps quality and just send out random invitations. Everyone on LinkedIn has received an invite from someone that they don’t know and don’t have anything in common with aka the SEO specialist in India!
LinkedIn encourages all users to connect with friends, colleagues and trusted professionals that they have worked with. But most people on LinkedIn want to expand their network to include users that they haven’t worked with yet, but would like to…. (prospecting).
How do I know how many LinkedIn invitations I’ve sent?
To view and withdraw your sent invitations:
1. Click the My Network icon at the top of your LinkedIn homepage.
2. Click Manage all near the top of the page.
3. Click the Sent tab under Manage invitations. Only sent invitations that are still waiting for a response will be displayed.
4. Select one of the following withdraw options:
- Click Withdraw to the right of each member’s invitations you want to cancel for single invitations.
- Check the Select box to select all and click Withdraw [number] for multiple invitations. You can also select multiple invitations one by one by checking the Select box to the left of each invitation.
- Check the Contacts imported from your address book box and click Withdraw all for invited imported contacts that happened by mistake.
