No.  People with whom I have done business and it was a positive experience will be accepted.  I use it as a bit of a rolodex for contacts, so  I  do not link with strangers.

I pretty much say Yes to all LinkedIn requests and pretty much say No to all FB Friend requests.

I totally ignore LinkedIn but I figure that's where professional contacts belong.  FaceBook I limit to people I care about -- friends, family, and clients who are friends.

I always accept invites. Most of the time they are either friends, or people who are in the industry. You never know where a good lead could come from and since I post a fairly decent amount of all of my social media sites I make sure to get the most outreach!
