LinkedIn has a new homepage to share with its users!
Although the professional networking site had tried to keep the changes subtle, the modifications have become quite evident and more streamlined than before – all for the sake of our joy and exhilaration.
Something good or just a tinker’s damn?
The new design has been segmented into three parts to help users supervise their professional brands in a better way, assist members in connecting within their professional web and organize the feed to run it seamlessly. In a nutshell, the network and dashboard have been split up.
The present homepage even provides a calculation of about how many people viewed your profile and how many are engaged, at present, on a certain link, say, that you have posted. In other words, this section tells you how you are performing on the site. Also, from now onward, your updates will appear on the top right ‘Keep in Touch’ box, as the LinkedIn people like to call it.
People who come looking for you shall be visible along with the route they took for the discovery.
Overall, the entire update is about totally focusing on the feed and sidecasting everything else in every direction possible. The whole homepage design has been simplified so that it’s easier for viewers to determine what’s what and encounter content which is most relevant and useful.
There, there….CONTENT, the amazing word.
And now, there’s a sudden earnestness about it! Before this update happened, every information fed to the platform was quick at arriving at the newsfeed section and leaving it with equal haste. And then, all of a sudden, mobile product vice president of the platform, Joff Redfern, got the headache like billy-o, thanks to the easily disappearing information. And then, he decided to pick up all information and nicely nest everything under a special area upon the website. ‘No one should lose no information’ – was the motto. So, now when someone gets a new job, the news is going to flash and stay for a longer time, in fact, enough time to earn him loads of congratulations.
And, about dismissing some ever-prevailing tags, the professional networking website is trying to repair its long-lost good name by turning into a publishing platform rather than staying a reservoir of résumé for eternity. With what? Well, it’s now showing you an information-rich news feed and engagement metrics. Need I say more?
Any premium membership perks?
No, none. Why should premium members have all the fun? Some perks need to be enjoyed free of cost and all efforts, right? Wait, isn’t that the very reason why they are called ‘perks’?
And that’s the end of the story…for the time being, that is.
