Yes. You can sign up and use the site for free.

When you sign in using LinkedIn you will be displayed a login window from LinkedIn listing which profile details from LinkedIn that is requested access to.

The data (your name, headline, email, location, skills, education and work experience) will only be made searchable on our site if you set your profile preferences to be searchable.

We do not ask for access to, or store, any of your LinkedIn contact data.

If you choose to make your email address available for other members of Networkersden, then they can add your email address to their contact list so that they can invite you directly on LinkedIn.

None of your profile data will ever be shared or used by us in any other way than for search on Networkersden.

If you at any time would like to delete your account you can do so from your profile page. All of your profile data will then be permanently removed automatically.

Open Networker

An open networker is a person who is generally very open for new connections and new opportunities.

Open networkers often use social network sites such as Twitter, Facebook, Google+ and LinkedIn to get in contact and connect with each other.

By adding yourself to networkersden.com you are making yourself available for other Open Networkers to find and contact you.

As you grow your professional network you also increase your reach, your influence and opportunities.

The more people you reach, the more likely you will connect with people that can help you succeed with your goals.

Likewise other people may reach out to you with new opportunities.

Open networkers are sometimes criticized for being too open with their networks, and focusing more on having a large number of connections instead of having quality connections.

By becoming a more open networker you will get more contacts, but also more emails and spam.

To limit the amount of unwanted emails, you could create a new email account for use with open network sites.

Even if you want to be a fully open networker you should not blindly be sending invites to people on every social network.

Please be aware that for some networks, such as LinkedIn, it is against their Terms of Service to invite people you do not know or trust.

We advice you to find your own balance between being open or selective about who you reach out to.
