The redesigns continue: new LinkedIn profile pages
Another day, another social media redesign. Following hot on the heels of a redesign of its company pages, professional social network LinkedIn has rolled out a new layout for profile pages.
The revamp is aimed at helping professionals tell the story of their career path more clearly, highlighting skills and accomplishments, making it easier to discover people and opportunities and facilitating greater engagement between contacts.
One of the new features in particular – “rich and visual insights on the people and companies in your network” – appears geared towards taking business stalking to the next level. The tool will show the people and companies in your network in a visualisation and make it easier to surface people connected to these networks.
Recent activity from members of your network will also now be displayed at the top of the profile, allowing you to stay current with what your network has been sharing and doing.
Over the next few months, all LinkedIn members will start to see their profiles in the new look and feel. To be one of the first to get the new profile, you can sign up at http://www.linkedin.com/profile/sample.
