The Largest Redesign Ever!
Welcome to episode 131, this week’s episode is mostly dedicated to the big news announced by LinkedIn last week.
I believe these changes will have a significant impact on how we use LinkedIn, it’s going to take a fair bit of getting used to…once we have it.
Before I get stuck into the announcements I did see one interesting article about Facebook for Work, which is going to be launched very soon.
Personally I think it will be a major flop…..What do you think? Read it here
The New LinkedIn Design
Amy Parnell, Senior Director, User Experience Design on stage, explaining the new design.
Below is a screenshot of the new homepage with arrows pointing to all the areas I discuss in the podcast;
I also made a short video explaining some of the changes
and here is the new look profile;
The New Feed
This doesn’t actually look much different but apparently they have been making lots of changes ‘under the hood’, the idea is that we should see more relevant posts and articles in our feed and under ‘trending’
Potentially very exciting! This is how the new messaging app will look in the main page (as opposed to the Messages page)
I’m not convinced about a subscription model for pricing but they are allowing Job seeker, Business Plus and Executive premium account holders free access to LinkedIn Learning. Shockingly though Sales Navigator and Recruiter premium account holders do not get access. Where is the logic in that?
That’s it for this week, I hope you found that useful.
If you get the new design, please get in touch and let me know what you think.
Don’t forget to leave a voicemail or email me with any questions or suggestions, till next time.
Have a great week.
Thank you so much for listening. I value your support and interest.

It can be difficult to get noticed in iTunes and one thing that can really make a difference is reviews. If you enjoy the show please take a minute to write an honest review in iTunes, it would be most appreciated.
If you are not sure how to write an iTunes review I have made a short video demonstrating how this is done.
