Announcing this, the LinkedIn blog stated,”Over the last year and half we’ve had the chance to learn quite a bit from you about the types of changes that add the most value to your daily professional life, and we’ve brought some of these learnings to the new navigation. When approaching this re-design, we analyzed years of navigation data to determine which links were adding the most value for you, and which could be removed to create a more focused and streamlined experience. We also observed how useful Search was as a productivity tool, and aligned the search box with the results page, for fine-tuned search efficiency.”
The new navigation has a simplified menu of tabs to enable users quickly and easily locate the features and content that are of most value to them. LinkedIn has also moved the search bar front and center to make easier than ever to discover and find what users are looking for on LinkedIn.
The blog further stated:”We’ve also ensured that your settings and other account options are a click away. Just hover over your profile picture in the upper right hand corner and the drop down menu gives you quick access to your account options, language and settings.”
