Your recent activity has been added directly below your personal details. This puts a lot of attention on the content you’re sharing on the social network, so make sure it’s quality stuff. Just below the Activity section is Background, where detail your present and past experiences. LinkedIn makes your professional story more visual by pulling in company logos for those listed.
To the right of your profile is a new visual representation of your network, including profile pictures of people you might know, the strength (or level of completion) of your profile, and a visual breakdown of your network.
The updated profile will be rolled out over the next few months, but you can sign up now to be one of the first. You can learn more about the new profiles on LinkedIn’s blog.
