Old LinkedIn email notification for new invitation to connect:

Includes option to view the person's profile before accepting. Smart. Especially since the integrity of the site is based on people have real and meaningful connections.

One button/link.

You either accept it or do nothing. This is dark man.

We know it's best to give users the options they would naturally look for even if we as the business really want them to do what we want.

Sometimes the business desires prevail but with this case I just can't see doing this. As a user of this service I really need to visit a person's profile before I decide to connect and I image most people would feel the same way. 

 

But wait!  Just a week or so later they are went back to the old way.  

I bet they got a lot of accepts for that short time they messed with us. So curious why they changed back but I'm glad they did.  

Happy ending. 

 

PS: Hope you ladies don't mind me not masking your sweet faces. If you do let me know. Go connect with these ladies ya'll!
