I tried to join a linkedin group today and got this auto email back:
“We will review your profile, and accept your request as soon as possible if you meet our standards.” At first I thought this was a fairly pretentious and rude thing to do. It got me thinking though - have they now set my expectation that being a member of this group will give me access to high quality people and discussions? Does it increase my desire to join?
I’m still not 100% certain. Curious to know what other people think.
