Adding someone as a connection is a good way to let him or her know you’re interested and want to talk. Anytime you smile, like, or send a message to someone and they respond back they automatically become a connection.* Any of these actions will notify the person of your request and if he or she accepts you can start chatting. If they don’t accept, you won’t be able to chat. If, after chatting for a while, you decide you’re no longer interested in the person you can also remove him or her as a connection. To remove someone as a connection, visit his or her profile and select Remove Chat Permission or go to your connections and select Remove Connection.
