While filing for its IPO, which is good news for anyone who wants to buy into the company, LinkedIn has recently added some new features to its People You May Know section, that provides users with a way to connect with other LinkedIn in members.
According to LinkedIn, People You May Know has helped millions of professionals and job-seekers grow their network through personalised suggestions offered by the feature. Now, the design has been updated with a more user-friendly layout and the relevance of suggestions more accurate.
The first update is a more “streamlined user experience” that makes it easier for users to connect with others in their network. Members can now view suggestions based on clear distinctive groups like schools, companies and past work places. To refine your search results and view people associated with that specific group, all you have to do is click on the company or school logo.
Another new feature is an “œendless scroll“ that presents your recommendations in a seamless two-column flow. While at the moment the list may not actually be endless, the goal is to make it very extensive.
The site has also been re-designed to be more photo-heavy where images are not only larger but also run in two columns.
The update, currently in beta, will be rolling out to all users over the next few weeks.
Don’t hold back on any comments or criticisms, as LinkedIn is currently seeking feedback on the update.
