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. Your mutual connections will display on the right of the page.
  3. If more than one person can make the introduction, choose who you want to make the introduction.
  4. Click Request an intro. This will take you to a text box where you can explain why you're asking for an introduction.
  5. Click Ask for an introduction. This message may get forwarded to the person you want to be introduced to.

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.
