Enterprise-focused social network LinkedIn is updating its user profile screen, to improve user communication.
The company said that the user interface would seek to improve ability for users to communicate with and expand their social network while also creating richer, more detailed pages.
Among the new features being introduced in the update are a move of the 'recent activity' feed to the top of the screen as well as a new set of editing tools which will allow users to better customise their personal pages.
The company said that the new layout has been designed to focus more on visuals and connection information within the user page.
"The new profile shows you rich and visual insights on the people and companies in your network," LinkedIn product manager Aaron Bronzan wrote in a blog post introducing the new format.
"These insights also make it simpler to discover people outside your network and quickly establish common ground to make more meaningful connections."
LinkedIn said that it will be rolling out the new profile layouts to user profiles in the the coming months. For those who would like to immediately enable the new features, the company is offering a test programme.
The update to the Profile screen comes as LinkedIn continues to seek to fend of rivals in the career-focused social networking space. Last month, the company revealed that its UK footprint had grown to more than 10 million members.
