Less may be better

Social media has become an easy way to connect to many people.  It’s a very popular way in increasing networks, however, according to the May 5, 2016 HBR article,  The More People We Connect with on LinkedIn, the Less Valuable It Becomes indicated that having to many networks may not be useful.

The article states “that a larger number of social network connections may be less valuable than a smaller, more intimate circle. With an enormous collection of friends or followers on a network, you lose the benefits of intimacy, discoverability, and trust, all of which can work better when you have fewer connections.”(p.1)

Also if you contact many people at the same organizations in different areas, it may indicate there is no specific career direction.   It is much better to make quality networks who can help you achieve your career goals.
