(English) Your LinkedIn Account Has Been Temporarily Restricted!!! Hoops…. WHAT DOES MEAN ?

As you should know on each Social Network there are rules. Just like Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, LinkedIn has rules too.

LinkedIn puts policies and procedures in place in an effort to deter abusive behavior specifically mired to send connection request to unknown people.

But you know that

The human temptation some time may be  stronger than RULES

The LinkedIn policies about is almost educative… They often will remember you about that and when necessary they may restrict your account..

Most of the time, restrictions can be easily lifted, it depends of the entity of your offence.

LinkedIn Restriction

If you are a first-time offender, the LinkedIn system will inform you that your account as been restricted… but give you the change to recover it quickly….  simply go to https://www.linkedin.com/unrestrict?display, read the info, check the box, and click ok. If all else fails, contact the LinkedIn help center.

What is The biggest offender that you may cause?

Sending too many invitations to people you don’t know. And to get different IDK (I Don’t Know flags) from them…

What can you do to ensure that this doesn’t happen to your account ?

  • Only invite people to connect that know you or have been a part of the introduction process;
  • Be sure that your photo is current and that it looks like you so you are easily recognizable;
  • Never send a generic connection request. Always personalize your message with a line about how you met or some other identifying information;

i.e. Hi Adam, It was a true pleasure meeting you at the Rome Conference last day. I’m looking forward to building a mutually beneficial business relationship with you. I’d be honored if you would accept my invitation to connect on LinkedIn. Best, Cristian

  • Use the ‘ignore’ option for people requesting a connection that you are not interested in connecting with on LinkedIn.
  • Use the ‘I Don’t Know’ option only when you do not know the person requesting the connection.
  • Don’t forget that you can use InMails as well. Ask them via InMail if they are interested in connecting and to send you the connection request if they are indeed interested.
  • Open Link members allow anyone to send messages their way. If they’re an open link member, simply send them a free message asking them to connect with you.
  • Messaging via LinkedIn Groups – no InMails? not an open link member? Feel free to message professionals directly from LinkedIn Groups, mention your common group, and invite them to send you a connection request on LinkedIn.

So please avoid to don’t just connect to connect.

Have a reason to connect with anyone on LinkedIn. Build valuable networks with purpose and make meaningful connections.

And keep always on mind that:

The ongoing battle of quantity vs. quality can only be won with knowledge.

Don’t Forget…

  • Be the first to give to your new business relationships (support, comments, help in general..);
  • Always pay it forward;
  • Do Networking with specific purpose.

So I wish you “Good luck” for your best networking experience on LinkedIN! Remember…

Networking it’s All About Leverage.

    Hi Christian,
