The user profiles have been relooked completely to offer simpler user experience.

Soon after redesigning company pages, professional networking site LinkedIn has announced yet another significant revamp unveiling a fresh look to its user profile pages. In the recent past, LinkedIn has redesigned and offered newer experiences to users as the third-largest social network to keep up with Facebook and Twitter, overhauling its company pages, mobile features, and adding engaging features to the existing ones, among other initiatives, to keep LinkedIn relevant and contemporary in the dynamic social media world.


On the company's blog, Aaron Bronzan, product manager, LinkedIn, says, "We're excited to share that we've just launched the next generation LinkedIn Profile, making it easier for our 175 million members to tell their professional stories, be found for opportunities, and build relationships through meaningful interactions. Over the next few months, all LinkedIn members will start to see their profiles in the new look and feel."

The new design offers LinkedIn users a more visual and engaging experience.

Users now have at their disposal tools such as inline editing that makes creating a complete, up-to-date profile much easier than before.

"Our new visual design helps you make a powerful first impression and showcase your skills and accomplishments,"

says Bronzan.

With richer and visual insights on people and companies in users' networks on the redesigned profiles, discovery of people outside networks becomes simpler, facilitating better connections.
Now, users can also quickly check the activities of the people in their networks and engage with them. Recent activity is now on the top of the profile, allowing users to keep up with what the members in their network have been sharing and doing.
