LinkedIn quietly goes contactless.
One of the interesting choices that LinkedIn made when it first started out over 20 years ago was giving people the option, often not obviously, to import and invite their contacts from mobile phones, computers, and email platforms.
This opened the door to new connections when LinkedIn started over 20 years ago, but also caused users frustration to find big pools of data in LinkedIn that they hadn’t realised they had allowed LinkedIn to get to.
However, it appears that LinkedIn has matured, or perhaps realised the error of its ways, and now completely discontinued the contact functions within LinkedIn.
A bit like the modern world – LinkedIn has gone contactless.
