LinkedIn New Profile Update

Looks familiar doesn’t it?

 

blog postssss

 

LinkedIn has rolled out it’s new profile redesign update to it’s premium users and it has striking similarities to Twitter’s new profile look. However, that isn’t necessarily a bad thing! As a result of the update, premium users now have the opportunity to choose their own cover photo. This can either be their own or they can use the header images LinkedIn provided. Pretty cool eh? Now LinkedIn profiles look a lot more visually appealing!  The only bad news is that non-premium users will have to play the waiting game as it will be a few months till they can have cover photos!

Whilst this is all great news that LinkedIn has made attempts to make their users profiles look a bit more appealing, the downside is that it comes at a cost. This cost is slightly lower now as a result of LinkedIn introducing a new, cheaper membership option called “Premium Spotlight”. However, the issue still remains, many users will feel they are paying for an update which you can get for free on different social networks.
