Linkedin, which was bought by Microsoft in June last year, is now rolling out a new update to its Desktop App with new Redesign UI and more features. The company says that its main goal of the redesign is to make conversations and content more central by making them more productive.
The new LinkedIn desktop site design features seven core areas on the bar navigation: Home, Messaging, Jobs, Notifications, Me, My Network, and Search. The “more” icon provides links to other areas, such as LinkedIn Learning, Groups, Slideshare, and more.
With the new real-time messaging interface it will allow users to message connections from wherever they are on LinkedIn. It will also provide cues, such as people in your network who can make job introductions. The new “universal” search box provides filter options along the right.
LinkedIn will be providing more information about who is reading and commenting on content users share. It also plans to provide suggestions for improving users’ profiles. The company says that the News Feed will be more personalized and will show content more relevant to individual users based on tweaks to its algorithms and work by human editors.
The above details were revealed in a LinkedIn Blog post and the company also plans to roll out the new features to all its members globally in the coming weeks. The company had already released the new features to its Mobile Apps on iOS and Android in late June 2015.
