Use LinkedIn to contact all your fellow 1st level connections. By clicking on “create a message” and typing in the names of people you wish to contact, you can contact up to 50 people at once.

Before sending your message you are asked if you would like everyone being addressed to be able to see all the other recipients.

It may be useful for everyone in a group to know all their colleagues have received an important message – like the “CC” option in an ordinary email.

However If you want to hide recipients’ identities, just untick the box. Each recipient will then receive a message that looks as if it was individually addressed to them – just like the “BCC” (blind copy) option in an ordinary email.


Tough Talk:


This is a powerful tool on LinkedIn designed to help you keep in contact with your connections. Don’t miss the chance to send out a message to multiple recipients. Reconnect with your forgotten connections. It only takes a few minutes. 

Top LinkedIn Tip: 

This only works with 1st level connections but is a great way of sending out invitations or sharing news. Just remember to untick the box below the message to hide recipients’ identities.
