With all the attention the latest redesign of the LinkedIn profile page has garnered over the last few days, let’s take a walk down memory lane and reminisce on the previous looks of the LinkedIn profile page!
The LinkedIn profile page has changed quite a bit over the last few years. I’ve been speaking on the benefits of having a strong LinkedIn profile for over 3 years now. Going through my old presentations, I found a bunch of screenshots of my profile that showcase how the LinkedIn profile has changed and developed. Let’s take a look!
This is the earliest example of my LinkedIn profile that I could find.
I especially like how the link for Twitter has a NEW! icon next to it. Note how I only have 208 connections. Contrast that with my current network of over 7,000 connections!
The next iteration brought the profile picture from the right to the left of the profile.
The bold field names were replaced with a lighter weight font. A toolbar was also introduced in this version that allowed readers to share the profile with other users and to print the profile to paper or PDF.
If you have any earlier screenshots of past designs of the LinkedIn profile page, please send them to me!
