On a separate window here, I logged-in as April Geller and I am going to accept the connection request we’ve just sent using John’s account. 

From here, let’s go to the Profile Dropdown > Connections > then Pending Requests. On this page, we can see the connection request from John. Let’s click Accept here.

Then let’s go back to John’s account. He received a notification that Adele has accepted the connection request. And just like, we are now connected and following Adele.

Now we will see if John really follows April Geller. Go to April’s account and click on the three dots. You will see that there is an unfollow button that means John is following April.
