People use LinkedIn to connect with other people: either by connecting with new people or finding the people they know in real life. In this platform, there is a difference between contacts and connections.
A contact is someone you have sent a message or invitation to. You can save people to your contacts by syncing contacts from other sources.
On the other hand, a connection is a contact that you have a 1st-degree connection to. Connections are made when a user sends an invitation to connect and the recipient accepts it. While all connections are saved to your LinkedIn Contacts list, not all contacts are 1st-degree connections.
If you want to add other LinkedIn members and you don’t know their email address, you can contact them using an InMail.
You can view a list of your synced and imported contacts from the Contacts page. Click the My Network icon at the top of your homepage and click See All below your connections on the left rail. Then click Manage synced and imported contacts on the right rail. Finally, click the Sort by dropdown above your connection list and select Recently Added. This is usually selected by default. This allows you to view and sort your contacts list to show the most recently added.
For your 1st-degree connections, you can see them all listed in the Connections page. You can sort your connections by name or by most recently added.
