If you've ever used LinkedIn you likely remember the clunky all work and no play user experience the website provided. The lack of attention to minor details that would improve the user experience never really deterred professionals from creating profiles to bolster their online presence, but it did heavily influence the functionality of the site and how often we used it.
Thank heaven LinkedIn is finally rolling out a redesigned version of the website that will enhance the user experience. Included in the makeover are upgrades to the messaging and search features, and a revamped simplified feed that makes the site easier to navigate.
All of the changes are being implemented in order to make the site much faster and boost features. Users will be able to search for profiles, companies, and jobs directly from the site's main search bar instead of having to navigate to different sections of the site.
Those are all great features, but perhaps the biggest improvement will come in messaging features. Messages will now be able to be accessed from a chat-style platform. This feature will also recommend connections to reach out to based on what you are looking for.
LinkedIn also plans to add new features that will add new ways for users to browse specific topics of interest. With all these improvements LinkedIn might just be a tool that we actually enjoy using.
