Dear Experts, I'm being stalked by an old co-worker! He was a real negative guy who had a terrible attitude at work. I left the company we both worked at about a year ago. I recently heard from friends that still work there he was fired for poor performance. Well, we have a job posting for a position similar to what he used to do at our firm. Suddenly, he is following me on Twitter and inviting me to connect with him on LinkedIn and Facebook - what do I do? I know he wants me to recommend him for the job - there's NO WAY I could do that. What should I do? Here is how our T.A.P. experts answered this question: Q#233 Block on Twitter. Ignore elsewhere. If it escalates, call the police. (@beneubanks) Q#233 Ignore him and his connection requests. Make your Twitter feed private. If your employer asks your opinion, be honest. (@gradversity) Q#233 Ignore, delete requests to connect. If approached, be honest-Not comfortable recommending anybody. Period.(@dawnbugni) Our Twitter Advice Project (T.A.P.) is no longer an active campaign.

You might be tempted to use the generic "I'd like to add you to my professional network on LinkedIn" template, but beware! By not personalizing your message, you could lose a precious opportunity to network.
