LinkedIn has been making a lot of changes and updates to their user interface recently, so things may look a little different if you haven’t logged in recently. For the most part, I feel these changes make the interface cleaner and improve the product, but just like everyone else, it takes me a while to adjust when someone changes or moves “my stuff”.
Recent LinkedIn changes include:
- Added support for displaying visual content on your profile
- Contact management enhancements
- Facebook Like Mentions
- Alumni Mapping Tool
LinkedIn has also made changes to the navigation menu, most notably making search more prominent and comprehensive. Here is a short video from the folk’s at LinkedIn demonstrating the updated navigation bar
LinkedIn just recently announced the update to the navigation bar, so it may be a while before you see these changes in your account.
