LinkedIn Begins Rolling Out Redesign | Talking Points Memo

Career-focused social network LinkedIn has begun rolling out a redesigned website to users, the company announced on Monday. The new design strives to be “simpler,” “more modern,” “cleaner,” and “richer,” as LinkedIn product manager Caroline Gaffney explained in a blog post. The most noticeable change is a large black navigation bar at the top of a user’s profile, which looks quite similar to Google’s own navigation bar. The new LinkedIn will also have to do without users’ Twitter updates, after LinkedIn disabled its Twitter app following Twitter’s announcement that it would begin stricter enforcement of its outside apps policy.
