Microsoft-owned LinkedIn finally has rolled out a brand new desktop design which is said to be a huge redesign. And it was high time! In the company’s words, the new look is the “largest desktop redesign since LinkedIn’s inception.” LinkedIn has streamlined features and given it a similar look and feel to the overhauled app design, which was changed in last December.

The all new design shows full of creativity, and is now built on a single-page application, which enables a more application-like experience. It has been broken down into seven sections for navigation: Home, messaging, jobs, notifications, me, my network, and search.

Well not only this, LinkedIn has also brought in a new real-time messaging interface that let users to message connection. The company said, “We'll also start serving up insights across the site to help you break the ice in any conversation and connect you to your next opportunity.”

Additionally, users will also get to see a new option of one universal search box that will help users find people, jobs, companies, groups and schools. One can see who is reading and engaging with the content they share, including the company, job title and location of the people who are interested in your updates. The company has also improved profile suggestions so users can more easily see what they need to do to look good professionally, for example, suggested skills based on what recruiters are searching for.
