LinkedIn has gone live with a redesign for its user homepage screen, to offer users a cleaner and simpler layout with a greater focus on news and network updates.
The business-focused social networking platform said that the new homepage is designed to be less cluttered than previous layouts, will put a premium on the update stream. The company aimed to provide more information in stream posts, allowing users to share updates and information.
Additionally, the update stream will automatically update streams without the need for clicking on the 'see more' link.
The company said that the refresh is part of a larger effort to overhaul the look and feel of the social networking platform.
"We're always looking for new ways to make the homepage experience better, more efficient and a place where you can come everyday to get what you need to be productive and successful," LinkedIn product manager Caroline Gaffney said in a company blog post.
"This is just the beginning of many more exciting, new features we plan to bring to the homepage to offer more customisation and functionality this year."
The update comes amid what has been a rough summer for LinkedIn. In early June, news broke that the company had in fact suffered a major security breach. The attack was eventually found to have left as many as 6.5 million users vulnerable, though the company ultimately was able to avert any serious damage.
