LinkedIn has some new updates! Over the next couple of months the 175 million members will see an update to their profile. This is in an effort to make it easier for users “to tell their professional stories, be found for opportunities, and build relationships through meaningful interactions.”
This is what LinkedIn has to say about the new changes:
“With this brand new profile experience, we’ve made it easier for you to do three things:
1. Tell your professional story
Our new visual design helps you make a powerful first impression and showcase your skills and accomplishments. We’ve also provided tools such as inline editing, making it a snap to create a complete, up-to-date profile.
2. Discover people and opportunities
Have you ever wondered how many of your connections already work for your dream company? Or what you have in commonwith the sales prospect you’re trying to reach?
The new profile shows you rich and visual insights on the people and companies in your network. These insights also make it simpler to discover people outside your network and quickly establish common ground to make more meaningful connections.
3. Engage with your network
We’ve also made it easier to see what your network is up to and to engage with them. Recent activity is now on the top of the profile, allowing you to stay current with what your network has been sharing and doing.”
