Good Afternoon All:

I have a question concerning connections.  For some reason, I cannot understand what the degrees mean under connection.  Like when it says you are 17 degrees from a certain person.  Could someone explain that to me?  I think i need one of those books for dummies  :)   

Thank you

There is a link on the Connection Finder for more information, which goes here:

Hopefully that helps explain it more.
