This just in from the LinkedIn Blog:
Over the last year, our product and engineering teams have rebuilt and in some cases, completely overhauled, our core member experiences, with the goal of helping our 450+ million members get the most value they can from LinkedIn. We want all of our members to use LinkedIn to be productive and successful, stay connected and informed, and advance their careers.
The data suggests the innovation and changes we’ve brought to market are working. Since our new mobile app was introduced last year and our messaging platform was rehauled, we’ve seen record levels of traffic and messages sent, and deeper engagement with our professional content and conversations happening every day across LinkedIn.
We’re not slowing down. So, what’s next for Flagship?
Desktop Redesign: I couldn’t be more excited to share today how we plan to bring the goodness of our flagship mobile app to our desktop experience. Earlier today, we previewed a new look and feel with journalists for the desktop that offers a cleaner, simpler and more intuitive way for members to quickly access the jobs, information and insights they need. With this, professionals can be better prepared for their daily meetings or learn more about a new skill they’d like to acquire. This is the largest redesign since LinkedIn’s inception, and it’s the foundation for our future. Stay tuned for more details as we bring this new experience to our members soon.
So what does this mean for you and me?
Lots of changes coming in 2017 as LinkedIn and Microsoft merge their massive user bases.
Here's a sneak peak at the upcoming improvements to the LinkedIn desktop.
