ACTION: Update your LinkedIn background header

Did you notice the latest LinkedIn update yesterday? I was coaching one of my students and my screen refreshed in the middle of our call and my LinkedIn background header changed size.

The new background image fits nicely on the screen with no ads blocking the upper portion. The new image looks just like the mobile version and looks very similar on all browsers.

Check out the new header on my client JV Crum III's profile. Nice and clean!

This is a huge improvement because now we can be sure our message is seen on all devices.

The old header size was 1400×425 pixels and the new size is 1584×396. Change your image as soon as you can.
