LinkedIn redesign

LinkedIn launched a redesign of their site tonight that looks pretty good.  I hit their site while they were launching and it looked like they were having CSS issues.  Turns out they were launching a redesign.

Upon first inspection, the sites looks more user friendly, but that’s more of an instinctual opinion than anything.  It just feels easier to use.

I plan on playing around with it in the near future and posting my comments here.

What do you think?

    I was less impressed with the site than you, especially now that I learn they’ve been “testing” it since last year! They better add some new features soon rather than just re-packaging old ones with a new look and navigation. It’s a simple usability principle. Why change something that all your customers know how to use unless you are going to make it significantly better?!?

    Good point, Tom.

    I don’t see a lot of new functionality. However, I do like the persistent navigation and mini user profile on the left side. For some reason that navigation seems easier or more accessible than the previous navigation.

    I do think they need to adjust their pricing model or packaging. I don’t know how many users are signing up for their advanced business plans, but I think a user should get much more for their money than the ability to send and receive more notifications.

    Thanks for the feedback, by the way.
