LinkedIn Profiles Getting Big Revamp

(Ping! Zine Web Tech Magazine) – If you’re a frequent visitor of LinkedIn, you might notice a change in the coming months. On Tuesday, the company noted it had revamped its user profiles, bringing a number of new features to the popular social business network.

“We’re excited to share that we’ve just launched the next generation LinkedIn Profile, making it easier for our 175 million members to tell their professional stories, be found for opportunities, and build relationships through meaningful interactions,” said the company’s Aaron Brozan via the LinkedIn blog.

Among the most notable of changes is a new visual design, providing users with inline editing and what the network says will help users “make a powerful first impression.”

New insights allow users to view the latest information pertaining to those in their networks. It also allows them to discover new people.

Recent user activity now appears at the tops of profiles, providing what the company says is an “easier way to see what your network is up to” and “engage with them.”

LinkedIn first launched in 2003 and is popular for allowing visitors to network within the business community online.
