Just noticed this on my LinkedIn - note the different call to action for Quibb, Luba, Robert, and Nicole. I'm actually being prompted to email and invite them to join LinkedIn vs. connecting to pre-existing users.
Looks like they're pulling from my address book, creating (what looks like) a mini-profile, and then prompting me to invite these 'people' to LinkedIn - all inside their People You May Know feature. Pretty smart… too bad 50% here aren't actual people :)
