You can use an introduction to contact 2nd degree connections through a connection you have in common.

  1. Go to the profile of a 2nd-degree connection you want to get introduced to.
  2. Move your cursor over the Down arrow in the box that reads Choose a shared connection.
  3. If more than one person can make the introduction, choose who you want to make the introduction.
  4. Write a message to the person who will introduce you and be clear about why you want to get introduced. This message may get forwarded to the person you want to be introduced to.
  5. Click Ask for an introduction.

If the member isn't within your network, use the Send InMail link to contact them. Also, if the member is in a shared group with you, you can send a message to them directly.
