LinkedIn's new design looks a lot like Facebook
LinkedIn is refreshing its entire site today with a new look that’s designed to bring the aging social network firmly into the 21st century. While most LinkedIn users probably visit the site infrequently, or because of a deluge of nagging emails, LinkedIn’s new design makes navigating the site a lot easier. There are now seven sections to navigate through: Home, messaging, jobs, notifications, me, my network, and search.
The main feed now looks a lot more like what you’d find on Facebook, with trending stories that are curated by human editors and algorithms, and you can unfollow and hide posts easily (just like Facebook). LinkedIn is also improving its search interface so it’s easier to find jobs, people, companies, and other parts of the social network.
