  • LinkedIn Open Networker.

    Someone who accepts all LinkedIn requests , and has thousands of connections.

    "Some take a different approach, where they accept LinkedIn invites from anyone located anywhere. For them, size and scale matters and they even have a self-appointed acronym: LIONS (LinkedIn Open Networkers). I'll admit it right now: I'll never be a LION, and don't ever plan to have over 2,000 LinkedIn connections. But why not be LinkedIn LION? It's a pretty fancy term isn't it? "
