Q: How do I connect using my LinkedIn and/or Facebook account?
A: The app allows you to connect and network with other people using LinkedIn. You can also connect using your Facebook account. When you first login to the app, you will be asked if you would like to connect via LinkedIn and/or Facebook. You may choose one or both, or neither. Once you are in the app, you can view information that Bucknellians have included in their LinkedIn and Facebook profiles along with the number of connections you have in common. Anything marked as private in Facebook or LinkedIn remains private. If you are not connected to that individual, you will not see his/her private information or feed, nor will he/she be able to view yours. Don’t forget to list “Bucknell University” in the education field in your LinkedIn profile, and be sure to join the Bucknell Alumni LinkedIn Group!
If you decide not to immediately connect your LinkedIn and Facebook accounts, you may do so at anytime by going to Settings and clicking on Manage Accounts. Likewise, you may disconnect those accounts at any time.

Q: Can I email or call another alum directly from the app?
