LinkedIn is not just another social network like Twitter where anything goes. Avoid these "don'ts" and avoid becoming a LinkedIn pariah.

I can't count the times I've heard someone look at former colleagues' LinkedIn Profiles and guffaw (yes, guffaw) while saying things like, "What!? He did what at our company?" "Nice of her to take all of the credit for a project that a whole team worked on!" "Since when did he have that title?" You get the picture. Depending on how you look at it, the good and bad thing about LinkedIn is that your experience is out there for all to see. Unlike the old days, when your resume was seen by only a few people, usually outside your own company, you could embellish without too much risk (not that you should have). That's not the case now, and it pays in many ways to be clear and honest in everything that you post.
