IDK is short for “I Don’t Know”. When someone gets an invite and decides they don’t want to connect they can choose to IDK you. Not exactly sure how bad that is but I do know that if you get too many LinkedIn will make you enter an email every time you try to invite someone. I have heard LinkedIn can even boot you off if you keep getting IDK’s. So I try to avoid them. Other current or future posts will show you different ways I use open networking groups, inmail, and open link to reduce IDK’s. It’s a little hassle to use these methods but I think it is worth it to not get IDK’ed.
