LinkedIn is confusing

by Thomas Brady

Why is it that on my laptop, if I go to Linked In and attempt to “Add [so and so] to my network,” I am challenged to demonstrate how I know them, and discouraged from attempting to add them if I admit that I don’t actually know them - and challenged to provide an email address if I say we’re friends. But with the iOS app, I can just “invite” people to connect with no issue?
