The world’s largest networking site for professionals, LinkedIn, after redesigning company pages has announced another significant revamp unveiling a fresh look to its user profile pages during a media presentation at LinkedIn Headquarters.
The new design offers its users a more visual and engaging experience in a more enriching manner and thus helping members better highlight their professional experience. The emphasis is on speed and ease of updating, with the goal of getting users to update their profiles more often not just when they’re looking for a job, but when they have a new skill or accomplishment to report or just want to share a link of interest to colleagues.
Our new visual design helps you make a powerful first impression and showcase your skills and accomplishments
says Aaron Bronzan , Product Manager, LinkedIn.
Some of the enhancements include in-line editing, a new sidebar for adding profile sections, higher-resolution photos, and being able to drag and drop profile sections to arrange them according to the user’s preference to simplify and make more convenient the process of updating information in its different sections.

The Profile will now also make more prominent relevant information about people on members’ networks, such as shared interests, to foster increased and better-informed engagement.
It’s not just about job seekers looking for the perfect job,
said LinkedIn CEO Jeff Weiner, considering that LinkedIn is also about entrepreneurs, sales representatives, and journalists.
We want to put the right business intelligence in front of the right member at the right time,
LinkedIn, whose site is used by about 175 million members worldwide for professional networking, started rolling out the new Profile on Tuesday, and expects to reach everyone in a few months. If you want to be one of the first few to take a look at the new Profile, LinkedIn is accepting sign ups here to be a part of this experience.
