What can I see? What can other people see?

If you choose to make your network visible to friends and coworkers, all they can see is the name, title, company, and how well you know each person (which you can change). That’s it. Enough information to be useful in figuring out if asking for a warm introduction is worthwhile – all without leaving you feeling exposed. 

Potential Contacts 

In the example below, imagine you were looking for a contact at Zoom. Nina came up as someone who you might be able to get in touch with through your network. In the image below you can see that three people that have a strong relationship with Nina and can introduce you. As the user, you can decide who you ask based on your personal knowledge of each person.

My Contacts 

For people you've interacted with directly, you can see all the information that already exists in your email inbox. We present your contact's name, title, company, email addresses, a history of your interactions, and mutual contacts. Mutual contacts are people you've both been on email threads with. If Tim joined Connect The Dots you would also be able to see his contacts. And, of course, handily sorted by relationship strength. The information you'd see for Tim's contacts would be similar to what you see up above.  

Sharing & Privacy 

You are in complete control of how your network is shared. The most information you will share is shown above. However, there are also options to only share with specific people/companies, or to make your network completely private.

When you share with specific people or companies, those are the only people who can see your network of contacts and potential contacts. When you choose "Private", you don't share anything with any CTD user. Of course, this means you will also not get the benefit of seeing other peoples' networks, or be able to help coworkers and friends with warm introduction.
