Meet the New LinkedIn Profile: A Better Way to Connect and Build Relationships
October 16, 2012
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.
With this brand new profile experience, we’ve made it easier for you to do three things:
1. Tell your professional story
Our new visual design helps you make a powerful first impression and showcase your skills and accomplishments. We’ve also provided tools such as inline editing, making it a snap to create a complete, up-to-date profile.
2. Discover people and opportunities
Have you ever wondered how many of your connections already work for your dream company? Or what you have in commonwith the sales prospect you’re trying to reach?
The new profile shows you rich and visual insights on the people and companies in your network. These insights also make it simpler to discover people outside your network and quickly establish common ground to make more meaningful connections.
3. Engage with your network
We’ve also made it easier to see what your network is up to and to engage with them. Recent activity is now on the top of the profile, allowing you to stay current with what your network has been sharing and doing.
If you’d like to be one of the first ones to get the new Profile, you can sign up here: http://www.linkedin.com/profile/sample. We look forward to your feedback as we continuously evolve the LinkedIn experience.
Also, if you missed our press event this morning where we demoed the new Profile for the first time, you can check out the recording of our live stream.
