LinkedIn have announced a revamp of there design. Full release info below. Nice to see them changes things up a bit. Lets hope it will be for the better.
“Millions of you are coming to LinkedIn everyday to discover and discuss what matters most to your professional life. And today, we’ve started to roll out a simpler and easier way to navigate Homepage experience that offers quick access to the relevant information and updates that help you be great at your job.
So what’s new?
A newer, simpler, and more modern design
We’ve revamped the entire Homepage experience with a new look and feel to make it easier to scan and find the information that matters most to you. This simpler and cleaner design makes it easier to navigate the page and quickly find the updates you’re looking for – whether that’s a news article your boss has recently shared or it’s to see who has just started a new job.
More relevant updates up top
Now you can see the most important network updates and articles at the top of the feed. This makes it quick and easy to stay on top of what matters most, such as trending topics, news, and professional updates based on what your connections and industry are reading, sharing, and discussing. This means, you’ll be spending less time hunting for information you need to be prepared for your workday and spending more time being great at the job you’re in.
A richer, cleaner update stream
We’ve completely refreshed the way updates look and feel in the stream with richer visuals for easier scanning and viewing. You can also see a continuous stream of updates without clicking “see more” to access all the latest updates from your network. It’s also easier for you to see what your connections are talking about and engage in these professional conversations by liking, commenting or sharing the updates that are most important to you.
We’re always looking for new ways to make the Homepage experience better, more efficient and a place where you can come everyday to get what you need to be productive and successful. This is just the beginning of many more exciting, new features we plan to bring to the Homepage to offer more customization and functionality this year. We look forward to making the LinkedIn Homepage your go-to destination to discover and discuss what matters to you, your industry and your professionals network around the world.
This newly redesigned Homepage is rolling out to all members over the next few weeks. We look forward to having you check out our newly redesigned homepage. To learn more, visit our Help Center.” – Caroline Gaffney, July 16, 2012
