LinkedIn on Thursday announced a new look tied to a complete overhaul of its technology architecture, which brings conversations and content front and center. The redesign brings the LinkedIn desktop in line with the mobile browser version launched in 2015. LinkedIn will roll out its new desktop globally over the next few weeks. Among the changes are a streamlined navigation bar, now with seven core areas: Home, Messaging, Jobs, Notifications, Me, My Network and Search. LinkedIn also has added a smarter real-time messaging interface.
