That is such a great question. When I first joined open networking groups I saw all these posts that said, “I will never IDK you”. I put in a couple posts that said, “I can’t IDK you I don’t even have a clue what it is.” I realized later that IDK is short for “I don’t know.” You might know that if you invite people and they don’t want to accept the invite LI makes it a little too easy to push this “I don’t know” button. Get too many people doing that and it means you get put on restriction. That means you can’t send an invite without an email address. Usually you can get that restriction lifted but it is a pain.
Your question points out something I can’t understand, LI has a zillion cool things you can do with it but using it is for some reason a deep dark secret. If you are interested you will find some other helpful information for using LI on my blog: www.LinkUpWithRay.wordpress.com. You can also access the blog from my LI profile.
