LinkedIn is full of useful information, but I’ve always found the interface to be cluttered and clunky. Looks like I wasn’t alone in that because they’ve just redesigned the profile page and it’s sweet. (Not that I’m taking credit for forcing a change but. . . . )
Glory be, the new format is not just one big block of text. Now they’re using well-defined boxes and colorful graphics to move your eye around the page. And as welcome as that is, it’s not just about good looks. One big change appears to be the ability to move sections around. In the current profiles, the Activity feed is to the right, but in the new version, you can make it the main section under your header. For someone like me, who sells content for a living, Activity is more important than Experience which is currently the most prominent section.
