Now, as we have studied what is it about, let's continue our discussion onwards.

You must have seen numbers written beside the names on Linkedin? Have you ever thought of what does that means? It tells you about how connection far is you away from that person. If 1 is written beside someone's name, that indicates both of you have one connection in common.

Imagine, your friend takes you to a party, where you met the person who organized it, he introduced you to one another person who came to his party along with one of his friends. So, while reaching the last person, you have met 3 unknown personalities, this is what 3+ means.
