LinkedIn, a professional social network, has recently started to release a new platform design to users. LinkedIn’s blog states that it will be a simpler and easier user interface allowing for navigation from a user’s homepage to features, which can improve access to relevant information about your industry. The more modern design focuses toward current updates occurring within the network.
