Among the top social media sites today, Facebook and Twitter have been exerting efforts to enhance their platforms. They make changes every now and then to the surprise of users the next time they log into their social media account.
LinkedIn is fast catching up and after improving the look of its company pages, it has now launched a new look for the profile page of members. Those who love visuals will surely rejoice over this new development as LinkedIn now allows its users to showcase their professional experience through the use of images.
In a move being made for the first time, LinkedIn users can now show their professional achievements through images, videos and even presentations in the most innovative way they can. This is now the opportunity of graphic designers, aspiring film makers and other creative people to present their works on this professional networking site.
Updating your profile can be done by simply clicking Edit on your profile and following the instructions that follow. Visual content can now be added in the different sections – summary, experience and education. Visual content can be uploaded from your computer or from other popular sites. In addition, your connections will be notified about your updates and can like or comment on what you’ve posted.
Initially, this new design is available in English speaking countries only. It will roll out in other countries later on.
Currently, LinkedIn has 175 million members and with the new look, users have a better opportunity to gain the attention of potential employers and clients as well as business partners.
