WOW – LinkedIn has been quietly testing changes to their overall design and are now in the process of rolling out the new design to all of their users. If you don’t see the change yet, you will sometime in the next week.
Some of the changes to the new design include:
- No persistent left-hand navigation. All global navigation is in the top navigation bar. LinkedIn wanted to free up space for page content – that means you can include more information about your and your network.
- New global navigation bar takes up less vertical space. Page content is moved up higher on the page – less scrolling!
- Drop down menus provide quick and easy access to popular LinkedIn features
- Additional applications and services are available under the “more” menu.
