Shouldn't Need to Link to LinkedIn Account to See LI Profiles
The sender card in a suspicious email gives the option of seeing LinkedIn profiles. When I click "show profile matches", I'm prompted to connect my Microsoft and LinkedIn accounts. This gives LinkedIn all of my contacts. I have deliberately NOT given LinkedIn all of my contacts. I know Microsoft bought LinkedIn, but it's a bad idea to require this. Among other things, how will you distinguish between work contacts and personal contacts? I don't want my boss knowing I dated his cousin.
