This year LinkedIn became more user-friendly. Now, it’s even easier to start a conversation with a colleague or business partner with whom you haven’t spoken in weeks. LinkedIn Messaging suggests personalized conversation starters for different types of conversations:

Shared experiences: mention something that you have in common, such as gone to the same school, worked at the same company, or attended the same conference.

Updates on professional activity: it’s a good habit to congratulate your connections when they start a new job or comment the shared content. Simply stay in touch.

Shared connections: it makes sense to mention someone who you both know in posts and comments.
