For the first time in five years, there has been a major redesign developed for Linkedin. With a new look and feel, here are the things to look out for.
Their aim is to make the LinkedIn experience easy, inclusive, enjoyable, and most importantly to put your community front and centre.
Its aim is to be simpler, more modern, and more intuitive, allowing for easier navigation and discovery.
- New search experience will make it easier to find people, events groups and content that you want to read.
- New illustrations that showcase people with different abilities, diverse backgrounds and ethnicities to make everyone feel welcome.
- The new feature “Open to Work,” a simple LinkedIn profile photo frame that says just that: you’re looking for your next opportunity. Nearly 2.5 million members have adopted the frame already. Early results show members with the Open to Work photo frame are receiving 40% more Inmails from recruiters and 20% more messages from the LinkedIn community.
- Also to be added to newsfeeds, are stories, not new to social media but new to LinkedIn. (Not sure how I feel about this – but haven’t got them, yet!) It does enable a less formal option to interact with friends and colleagues and is considered to be the water cooler moments on this platform.
Next, we have the option to go live on a click of a button. using Teams, BlueJeans by Verizon, or Zoom directly from a message thread.
It is also lighter and brighter to view both on desktop and mobile versions.
