Earlier this month, LinkedIn updated with a new design. If it’s been a couple of weeks since you’ve logged on, here’s what’s new.
Beyond the design, which includes a more streamlined navigation bar, LinkedIn added some useful features. A few of them include:
- Greater insight into who’s viewing your content: You can now see who’s reading and engaging with the content you share, including the company, job title and location of the people who are interested in your updates.
- Better suggestions to make your profile stand out: We’ve improved profile suggestions so you can more easily see what you need to do to look your best professionally, for example, suggested skills based on what recruiters are searching for.
- More intuitive search: You now have one universal search box to easily find people, jobs, companies, groups and schools. You can refine your search by using filter options on the right hand side, with the ability to search posts coming soon. Also, we’re investing further to better understand signals on what they searching for? Or who you are searching for so we can bring you the best results for any search query.
The update is on the desktop version of the app and it also includes real-time messaging. They also plan to offer suggestions for conversation icebreakers. If there’s a posting you’re interested in, for example, LinkedIn will tell you if there’s anyone in your network who works for that company.
