You’ve probably used LinkedIn a few times while looking for a job, filled in your information, and most likely rarely touched it again. But, the site’s new design ensures that you stick around.
The company is calling it “the largest desktop redesign” since LinkedIn’s inception. It’s largely inspired by the company’s mobile apps, with a much cleaner and modern design.
The goal is to help users more easily access “the most relevant professional conversations, content and opportunities whether they on mobile app or on desktop experience.”
There are a few changes LinkedIn is making to achieve this:
- Large icons at the top of the site for easier navigation.
- Facebook-like chat windows that are persistent no matter where you are on linked in.
- LinkedIn will encourage conversations on its site by suggesting people to chat with if you have a connection at a company.
- The feed has been fine-tuned with a combination of algorithm and humans. The company promises new ways for reading about specific topics you care about too.
- A single universal search bar for everything across the site.
- More insight on who’s reading the content you share.
- Suggestions on how to tidy up your profile.
Site’s new outlook is more Facebook’s like – cleaner, easier and user friendly. Anything that gives people a reason to stick around is a win for LinkedIn.
