Linkedin works on the idea of having business contacts, which are referred to as ‘Connections’. If you are registered on Linkedin, each contact on the list of people you are connected to can be interacted with (based on certain rules) and who then become your extended contacts, meaning you maintain a chain of professional connections. This list can be used to find jobs or by employers to search appropriate and suitable candidates for potential jobs.
Linkedin works on a “handshake-access approach” that ensures proper identity acknowledgement and recognition. This means a user has to have a relevant connection with you so as to avoid undesired contact. It also applies aspects of European Union privacy laws and the European Union “safe harbor privacy” framework.
Linkedin is a growing and very popular means of and utilizing contacts for business or career management.
