LinkedIn Introduces a Simpler Homepage

LinkedIn has started rolling out a new homepage to their members that offers quick access to relevant information and updates.  The new look removes a lot of the clutter from your homepage, showcasing the information you'll likely care about the most.  So, what's new?

  • Simpler, more modern design - The entire homepage has gotten a facelift with a new look and feel to make it easier to scan and find the information that matters the most to you.  The simpler design makes it easier to navigate the page.
  • More relevant updates at the top - Now you can see the most important network updates and articles at the top of your feed to stay on top of what matters most, like trending topics and news.  This means you will spend less time hunting for information you need to be prepared for your workday.
  • Cleaner update stream - The way updates look and feel has been refreshed with richer visuals for easier scanning and viewing.  You can also see a continuous stream of updates without having to click "see more" to access all of the updates from your network.

Below is a mockup of the new LinkedIn homepage:

According to the LinkedIn blog, the new homepage will be available to all LinkedIn members in the next few weeks.  Let us know what you think of the redesign in the comment box below.
