I just accessed a client's account to update his LinkedIn profile and I was surprised to find a totally different look to LinkedIn. Gone is the white background. In it's place is a gray speckled background. The navigation bar is black in color and spans the full width of the screen.
It almost looks like LinkedIn may be in the midst of even more changes since some pages still have the old design like the edit profile sections. The LinkedIn profile still looks pretty much the same except for the new navigation bar. Although the navigation bar looks different, the pages are still in the same order.
A New Design for LinkedIn?
These changes aren't rolled out entirely since my profile still has the old look. A few months back I stumbled upon a totally different look to the LinkedIn profile I was optimizing. I mistakenly clicked away and when I went back, the old profile design was back. So who knows! This may disappear just as fast as it arrived.
Do you have the new LinkedIn design? What do you think of this new look? Do you like it? Hate it? What would you like to see?
