LinkedIn redesign

What can one say but “Hallelujah.” Your LinkedIn profile is finally getting a long-overdue facelift.

And this ain’t no flimsy nip and tuck, either. The new LinkedIn profiles are superslick, modern, and mobile-friendly. Like other recent LinkedIn changes, the profile redesign eliminates a lot of clutter.

As you can see in this before/after image, the makeover neatly organizes key information, highlights important actions, and sweeps away unnecessary text. The new profiles feature a Contact tab with links and social networking information, and the user-written Summary section is pulled front and center:

“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,” a LinkedIn rep confirmed to VentureBeat today via email. “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.”

Redesigns have been something of a theme at LinkedIn over the past several months. The company rolled out a new homepage design back in July, and its mobile apps, including a new iPad app, have been reimagined from the ground up.

LinkedIn user Donna Serdula also made this video showing some of the new profile design elements:
