LinkedIn Profile gets a facelift as it looks for more interaction between members
LinkedIn is to revamp its members’ Profile pages in a bid to get more people interacting with each other and building professional relationships.
The online network, which already boasts more than 175 million members, is opting for a more visual design, enabling users to highlight specific skills and accomplishments to potentials employers, clients and contacts, rather than having to trawl their way through various sections.
LinkedIn hopes that not only will this provide more insight into existing contacts but that it will also enable users to make new connections with people of similar interests.
As a user, your profile will also become a hub for what’s happening around you. Any activity occurring in any networks you belong to on LinkedIn will now be ticker-taped at the top of your profile.
LinkedIn is also introducing inline editing, making it easier to tweak and amend specific sections, so you can ensure your profile stays sharp and up to date.
LinkedIn will be rolling out the revamp in the coming months, and is inviting a limited number to try it out now by signing up at www.linkedin.com/profile/sample.
