Wondered that myself I've just recently got connected to some very high profile people but I think it was because I was connected to someone who was already connected to them.

I wouldn't want to just accept anyone as once they're connected they can send you spam or whatever they like. I think people especially those up the tree would not allow just anyone to connect.

But to answer your question there must be a setting to allow it somewhere.

I've never bothered with Linkedin, or any other form of social media

But I'm curious, what's the benefits of Linkedin?

Many people get employment from it, it helps get you noticed and keeps you up to date on who's doing what.

 If you are a recruiter, you get heaps of people (senior and junior) who have heard Linkedin could be important wanting to connect.  They don't know you'll never look at their profile again.  It's become a damn nuisance.   It'll end up choking on its own vomit but not before it drives me mad.

Give it a shot can't hurt
I only joined to find a certain person, that was a year ago, I've only just realised why its popular.

Don't agree to connect, simple.
But you may be able to identify some who you may be interested in.
You can see their profile before you agree.

I wouldn't bother with it at all for your business, just an informative web site is all you need.
