The new face of LinkedIn
For over nine years LinkedIn has had a consistent user interface but all that is about to change. After a long wait LinkedIn is finally in the process of releasing a user interface update and it is starting to make appearances in accounts in the passed two days.
The new design takes some elements from Twitter with the floating top menu now on a darker backdrop, but uses the same tabs that we are all used to, but it is fixed as you scroll up and down the page.
They have raised the prominence of the LinkedIn today stories with bigger graphics on the feature story but also the other headline stories too, as well as moving it closer to the top of the page.
This all seems to tie in with their mission to make things simpler for all, Jeff Weiner CEO has stated this as an intent some time ago.
There has also been some minor tweaks and changes in the last ten days to things like people you may know and also to the people who have viewed your profile section with additional buttons to message existing contacts or connect to those who have viewed your profile.
What do you think of the new interface? What else do you think they should change?
