Social Media Updates: LinkedIn’s New Look

Have you logged on to LinkedIn lately? If you have, you may have noticed a few updates to your homepage. I’ll just give a quick overview of the two key improvements.  I encourage you to check out the LinkedIn Blog for full details.

First, the tool bar across the top has a new look.  The categories pop thanks to new font and background colors.  This makes it easier to navigate the different areas of your account and utilize the system more efficiently.

Second, the news stream is more organized.  Have your eyes ever gotten tired after scrolling through network updates, the latest news, etc.? If so, then you will find this to be a welcomed change.

Overall, LinkedIn’s new homepage is much cleaner, and, as they put in their own words, “simpler”.  Whether you are new to LinkedIn or an experienced user, I hope you find this new look helpful. This update is also an important reminder that social networking sites experience change frequently, and sometimes with little warning.  Be sure you utilize resources, like the LinkedIn Blog, to understand new features and tools, as well as stay ahead of the curve when it comes to social media.
