Arguably the most popular social network among professionals, Linkedin has made great strides in the past decades and cemented its position among the working-class folks, who use the platform to not only connect with fellow professionals but also collaborate and find new projects and job opportunities, including pro-bono or volunteer work.
Linkedin began its journey in 2003 with an aim to help professionals connect across borders and that elementary objective of the Microsoft-owned platform remains relevant even today as connections are one of the most important aspects here.

If you want to sort your list of connections and maybe add or remove a few, here is how you can see all of your connections on Linkedin on PC and Linkedin app.
