We’ve seen Twitter look more and more like Facebook with its profile page designs, and now LinkedIn is following suit.
The professional networking platform unveiled a new look today for its premium member profile pages, along with some nifty new features.
Here’s what’s different:
Bigger better visuals: In addition to larger profile pictures, premium members will have the option of adding a banner-like background image. And if they don’t have one at hand, LinkedIn has its own gallery to choose an image from. Here’s what it will look like:
Tips for optimizing your profile: LinkedIn will automatically generate tips for how to make you profile stand out, whether its image sizes, or keywords to help you write your bio more professionally.
Keywords: LinkedIn will suggest keywords that give your profile a greater chance of being discovered in a LinkedIn search.
Open Profile: In case you want everyone to find you and contact you, LinkedIn is now giving you the option to make your profile completely accessible.
Improved tracking: In addition to getting a 90-day list of who’s been viewing your profile, premium users also get the top 100 results for How You Rank against your first-degree connections and company. If you want to see how your LinkedIn profile stacks up against people in your company and industry peers, this is the tool to use.
