LinkedIn Releases Major Desktop Redesign


LinkedIn has just launched a significant new desktop redesign.

The overhaul is LinkedIn’s “largest desktop redesign” since it first launched in 2002.

The new design aims to put conversations and content at the forefront of the platform, while also continuing to show users the most relevant job opportunities.

The main changes include adding seven “core” areas on the navigation bar – Home, Messaging, Jobs, Notifications, Me, My Network, and Search.

LinkedIn has also added “smarter messaging” so members can contact connections wherever they are on the platform.

In addition to this, LinkedIn is taking some tips from online dating sites – beginning to serve up insights to help users break the ice in conversations.

And if you are interested in a particular job, the platform will now suggest someone in your network who works at that company.

Other changes include an updated feed that will surface more relevant content from people and publishers, a new intuitive search with more filtering options and suggestions to improve your profile.

For those who regularly post content on the business platform, LinkedIn will also offer better insights into the people viewing your content.
