LinkedIn says it wants to make it easier for you to stay on top of the news and insights you need. The social network is debuting a refreshed look on LinkedIn Today and introducing channels to make it easier to discover and share professional news and insights.
Through channels you can follow broad topic areas that cross multiple industries and sectors. Channels represent a more comprehensive way to discover, share, and engage with high-quality Influencer posts, top news sources, and SlideShare content - all in one place.
There will also be new ways to sort content. "Your News" offers a customized LinkedIn Today page, which features the latest news from the channels and Influencers you follow. "Influencer Posts" provides a quick overview of the top Influencer posts of the day. "All Influencers" shows you more than 250 Influencers in one place. "All Channels" displays the new channels so users can follow the professional topics that interest them.
