Sometimes LinkedIn users encounter a question from LinkedIn, asking them if they know someone. This “someone” is also a LinkedIn user that you may or may not actually know. This is something many people are curious about. They want to know how LinkedIn comes up with these recommendations. Truth is, there are a lot of factors that come into play before LinkedIn shows you their recommendations.
Many LinkedIn users wonder if LinkedIn asks them about another user because that person clicked their profile. While that is certainly a possibility, that is not the only thing LinkedIn considers. It is also likely that the person sent you a connection request, or at least attempted to send you one.
Sometimes LinkedIn asks this question to ensure that users are not sending massive amounts of connection invitations. They do not want LinkedIn users spamming others. This may be their attempt to find out if users are mass-sending these invites.
Additionally, the algorithms used by LinkedIn are much broader than people think. Although they are not published, the criteria likely used by LinkedIn include the following: Industry, Prior Jobs, Current Job, Title, Keywords used in your LinkedIn Profile, Groups you are part of, Companies you follow, and your LinkedIn Network. LinkedIn also considers the region you use on your LinkedIn profile to determine which users you may possibly know.
