    Invitation Limits
    LinkedIn initially allows all users to send up to 3,000 invitations.
    LinkedIn encourages all users to connect to their trusted professional contacts, and to others who welcome connections with new contacts.
    Users who limit their invitations to these two groups have high invitation acceptance rates and LinkedIn will usually raise the limit for such inviters.
