However, if someone tries to view your profile when you have blocked them, you will see a message at the top of the page telling them that you haven't approved their access yet and asking them to send you an email. They can do this by clicking the "Send Message" button next to their name in the "Who Viewed My Profile" section.

Can people message each other on LinkedIn?

LinkedIn Messaging enables you to communicate with other LinkedIn members with whom you are connected. You can only communicate your first-degree connections (and, inside group pages, fellow group members) for free on LinkedIn. However, if you have a paid LinkedIn membership, you can communicate with third-degree connections (people you don't know but who are connected to someone you do know) as well.

You can send messages through the Messages feature in two ways: by email or via the mobile app. If you want to send an email message, click on the down arrow next to the name of the person you would like to contact, select the option to send them an email and then type your message. The message will be sent just like any other email. If you want to send a message through the mobile app, go to their profile page, click on the three horizontal lines icon, and select Send Message. Type your message and then click send.

Both methods will display your connection's email address or phone number, depending on how they have configured their account. You will also see an option to "Talk" which will connect you audio chat with that person. Click this button to begin talking.

Note: It can take up to 30 minutes for your message to be delivered after you press send.
