Broken for me for now :(

With the people search on LinkedIn you can view the connections you have in common with your 1st and your 2nd level connections and even search within them.

You can also see your connections' connections (unless they hide them) - and search within them as well.

The links are available under the names that show up in people search.

That has some uses :)

Here are my connections, just to illustrate: https://www.linkedin.com/vsearch/p?pivotType=cofc&pid=1769200 - you will see a link to that if you search for my name.
