Connect with people on LinkedIn
If you want someone to join your professional network on LinkedIn, you can send them an invitation. It's similar to a friend request on Facebook. When they accept your invitation, they will become your 1st-degree connection. You should invite people you know and trust since only 1st-degree connections are given access to the primary email address on your account. Follow these steps to invite or connect with people on LinkedIn.
