LinkedIn has begun to roll out a new look for its profile pages, placing a greater emphasis on user summaries as the site continues to grow as a popular recruitment tool, according to a report.
The new look, which is believed to be rolling out to new users slowly, now shows a larger picture and user name, and brings user summaries higher up.
In a trade-off for those changes, LinkedIn has dropped user websites, contact information and Twitter handles from the top of profiles. It also presents past experience, user connections and custom profile URLs in a more elegant but much smaller manner.
To access websites, contact and Twitter information, users will now need to click a button that expands to reveal the information.
