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.
We often make changes to LinkedIn to improve the experience based on feedback from our members. Today, we’re introducing two changes to the Profile that may have an impact on your completeness score.
First, the Profile will put more emphasis on Skills and Expertise. This means you can showcase your areas of expertise to easily connect with people that have similar skills or with companies looking for subject matter experts. We’re also changing how we calculate profile completeness. The new calculation gives you more control of your score by emphasizing things you have direct control over, like Skills, and putting less weight on areas you may have less control over, like Recommendations. The score also takes profile freshness into consideration, so frequent profile updates can now help with profile completeness. Here are tips for completing your profile based on the new calculation.
