What is the Difference Between the Old LinkedIn User Interface and the New UI in 2017 (and Why Should You Care?)

LinkedIns New Look LinkedIn's new user interface is here. Well, its here for some of us like my friend Kate Paine . I dont have it , so a huge thank you to Kate for giving me access to her new LinkedIn UI! I have a video you can watch of my UI comparison here ! Lets take a look at LinkedIn side by side so you can see what's new on LinkedIn, what's gone away on LinkedIn, what's better with the new LinkedIn user interface, and what's not so hot! First of all, wow, LinkedIn changed colors, right? It's been some form of blue, black, and white, and gray for at least nine years. They've moved to this dark teal color. How does this affect you? Well, probably not much at all unless you are colorblind. Having said that, the reason LinkedIn is giving for the new user... Read More

LinkedIn's Latest User Interface Changes Well, LinkedIn's done it again. Made a whole bunch of changes to its user interface. To be fair - most of the changes are on the menu bar.  But they are big changes! I have a video below that walks you through step-by-step. It was done on the fly and with my client's profile (and permission), but it'll tell you what you need to know if you to have the new user interface on LinkedIn. Video of LinkedIn's New Changes Homepage Tab The homepage is pretty much the same. Except now instead of the full LinkedIn logo, it's just the blue LinkedIn logo. But it takes you to the same place. Profile Tab Under 'Profile' you'll notice we've lost the drop down box. Meaning you have to edit and view your profile from the... Read More


You Can Now Easily Add Media to Your LinkedIn Profile

By: Viveka Friday December 14, 2012 comments Tags: New on LinkedIn, New LinkedIn UI, Rich Media, LinkedIn Video

Or Why I Love LinkedIn Again Adding Video to LinkedIn I changed my mind again about LinkedIn's new user interface .  Again.  They pissed me off with the removal of LinkedIn Apps , and LinkedIn Events.  I was also not thrilled with the relagation of  LinkedIn Polls being to a Groups only tool.  That being said, I am in love with the ability to add rich media content to your profile, easily, through a simple link. So I am happy with LinkedIn again. Many folks were upset with the removal of apps – it was all we talked about in the #LinkedInChat last week!  However, this new link makes adding video and other content WAAAAAY easier.  And other apps like Tripit, JD Supra’s Legal Updates and Box.net take a bit more set up – but are still relatively easy to...

By: Viveka Tuesday December 11, 2012 comments Tags: LinkedIn Tips, New on LinkedIn, New LinkedIn UI

And other questions about the new LinkedIn User Interface! Well – according to the letter MOST of us got yesterday, we will all have the new User Interface – well – today!(December 11th, 2012) If you have not yet done so – read this article on the new UI and what it can do for you! ( http://linkedintobusiness.com/the-new-new-new-linkedin-profile-revealed/ ) Or watch video below LinkedIn Events To answer your question, “Where the hell did events go?”  Well – they are just gone.  LinkedIn decided they were chaff and threw them away.  Personally I liked LinkedIn Events even though I suppose they didn’t work like they were meant to and people rarely looked at or used them.  But the folks who did use Events really...

5  Things to be Thankful for in LinkedIn’s New(est) User Interface. I’m being a little proactive here as I STILL DON’T HAVE THE NEW LINKEDIN USER INTERFACE . When I wrote this post I was SURE I would have it by now!  (Hint hint LinkedIn!)  Nonetheless, because of the way LinkedIn is rolling them out, we are able to see what the new interface looks like for other members, and even make use of the new interface before we get our own!  (‘Cause I still don’t have one...

Anyway – to check out what the new UI looks like, take a gander at: http://www.LinkedIn.com/in/BethKanter http://www.linkedin.com/in/jeffweiner08 http://www.linkedin.com/in/brandonmoase...

LinkedIn's New User Interface is awesome LinkedIn’s newest user interface (the 3 rd in as many months) is rolling out today, as was revealed at LinkedIn’s latest press conference .

Here are some cool things to look forward to: Simplified Editing: The New Home page allows both for information and content absorption as well as quick editing.  This... Read More


LinkedIn’s New Profile User Interface Work-Arounds

Where did vCards and Network Statistics Go? Here are just a few of the areas affected by the new UI - and people are not happy: vCards Network Statistics Colleagues and Classmates New to LinkedIn Messages, Introductions and InMails Website Info Recommendations As you might have read in my last post , despite LinkedIn’s newer “cleaner” look, the new UI is not getting rave reviews. Amongst the biggest complaints has been the removal of Network Statistics and vCards.  However, there are some imperfect work-arounds.  I am hoping that with the complaints people have been posting, LinkedIn will reconsider the removal of these two items and reinstate them. Why did they remove them?  I honestly have no idea and LinkedIn... Read More
