The LA Times reported, Monday, on changes to LinkedIn profiles, and LinkedIn later confirmed the changes. LinkedIn told the Times in an email statement:
"We are focused on making it easier for LinkedIn members to get more value out of the services we offer by creating simpler, more relevant, more social experiences...This new look and feel to the profile is the first step of many more exciting changes to come to the LinkedIn profile later this year."
The new profile look puts more emphasis on user information, including the all mighty profile picture. Notably, the LinkedIn makeover doesn't seem to have riled up its user base the way Facebook changes tend to.
