Use cases

Contacts and privacy

One of the main uses for contacts is as a way to control who is allowed to see your profile information. This can be done by navigating to the Privacy section of your profile and setting the appropriate profile field(s) to Contacts. This will ensure that only your contacts can see that profile field.
