We’d like to call out a few key updates to these documents:
In celebration of Global Accessibility Awareness Day, we are happy to share some enhancements to LinkedIn to help professionals of all backgrounds and abilities be more productive and successful. What started out as a few passion projects by members of LinkedIn’s web development team has now become the formation of our Accessibility Web Developer Task Force, dedicated to making LinkedIn user experiences inclusive and accessible. Here’s what we’ve been up to lately:
Improved Site Navigation: Members who navigate with a keyboard can now better perceive where they are on a LinkedIn page and save time in moving between professional content and features.
We want to make it easier for you to stay on top of the news and insights you need to be great at what you do. Millions of professionals are coming to LinkedIn to glean these daily insights to help inform their business conversations and decisions everyday.
You will start to see a refreshed look on LinkedIn Today and the introduction of channels to make it easier for you to Discover and Share professional news and insights. Through channels you can follow broader topic areas that cross multiple industries and professional sectors. By following channels you will have access to timely and relevant professional news and insights that can help you stay one step ahead and be in the know on what’s trending in your professional network. Channels represent a more comprehensive way to discover, share, and engage with high-quality Influencer posts, top news sources, and SlideShare content — all in one place.
This week, LinkedIn is celebrating our 10th anniversary. While much has changed for us over the last decade, one thing has remained consistent — our unwavering focus on how we can help our members be truly successful in their careers. From the earliest days in his living room, Reid and his co-founders knew that by always first asking “what do professionals need, and how can we deliver it to them?”, we could create something that would impact their lives in a truly transformative way.
At LinkedIn, we continue to be guided by this “Members First” philosophy. Every day for the last ten years, we have tried to stay true to this philosophy and to our mission of connecting the world’s professionals to make them more productive and successful. Everything we build is dedicated to helping our members show the world who they are; make the most of who they know; and build upon what they know.
From our humble beginnings in a living room in Palo Alto to today’s 26 offices around the world, LinkedIn has become a global destination for more than 225 million professionals around the world.
We started out as a network for professionals to build their professional identities and connect with one another. As our products have evolved over the past ten years, LinkedIn has changed the way professionals work and has shifted some fundamental business habits. The way professionals connect with one another, find and pursue new business opportunities, discover and share information and insights, as well as how companies are finding the right talent for the right opportunity, have all forever changed with the power of LinkedIn.
