|Today, LinkedIn listed a large number people from my Google Contacts and asked me whether I wanted to connect to them. I double checked and I never had LinkedIn authorized to access my Google Contacts. And my Gmail password is different from LinkedIn password.|
It is interesting that list is not the exact copy of Google Contacts but it is quite similar.
This post is not to complain but to understand what kind of voodoo LinkedIn is using to get users Google Contacts.
