Social networks (LinkedIn, Facebook, etc) make it very easy to rapidly add connections to your network. But after years of growing that network, one begins to want to trim that network of stale / irrelevant connections. Let's focus this question on LinkedIn. A few examples:
- college associates you haven't communicated with in the years since graduation
- recruiters not suited for your career
- former co-workers
For people who haven't meticulously maintained their network over time, it's tedious to browse a large network of connections, one at a time, in order to remove irrelevant connections. There must be a better way!
In short, has LinkedIn provided enough information via their API (or their web interface) to build a "People You May
Know Want To Disconnect" feature?
