Once I had a terrible situation when I was talking with a partner on LinkedIn and accidentally blocked him. I don't know what my problem is, but the Linkedin interface always gives me problems, so I decided to google how to unblock people on linkedin. It's good that now I can quickly and easily find the information I need on the Internet, because otherwise I would spend a lot of time on it.
