All the changes I’ve discussed this week are designed to make LinkedIn more visually appealing. Another example: many of the insights that used to be presented as numbers are being replaced by images. Here’s a look:
- The Profile Strength graphic replaces the “profile completeness” percentage. LinkedIn also decided to have a little fun here, with measures like “All-Star.” And if you want to improve the strength your profile? Just go to the menu, choose Profile/Edit Profile, and click on the blue “Improve Your Profile” button in the summary box at the top.
- Your Network is now visible as an infographic.
You can view the number of
connections you have by company, geography, school, and–as shown
at right–industry. This is a great tool for understanding where you have strong connections, and where improvement might be needed.
- The Who’s Viewed My Profile? module now gives you faces (depending on your settings) right up front instead of one click away. It’s a good peek into whose attention you’re attracting at any given time.
What other changes have you noticed that I haven’t covered this week? As always, if you have any questions, drop a note in the comments.
