LinkedIn can’t stop serving up new features

LinkedIn overhauled its desktop offering earlier this year.

Not content with that, the social network for professionals has rolled out a slew of new updates based on user feedback.

Here's what's new.


You now have more control over the type of Notification you receive, and can customise them based on your preferences.

For example, you can choose to receive Notifications on job postings, rather than birthdays.

Breaking news

To make sure you're keeping up to speed, Trending Storylines has been added to the LinkedIn Feed, based on new developments in your industry.

On mobile you'll find this content on the home screen under the Trending tab, on desktop it lives up at the top right of the homepage.

Tweakin' time

LinkedIn has also tweaked existing features, such as the ability to add a filter and crop your profile picture, improved Search fields, a Profile Completion Metre, and new ways to manage comments.

Don't hold your breath either – LinkedIn promises there's more sweet updates on the way.

How do you use LinkedIn on a regular basis? Let us know any pro tips in the comments.
