LinkedIn Unveils New Mobile App for the Everyday Professional [VIDEO]
Posted on April 18th 2013
The typical workday extends well beyond the traditional 9-5 at the office these days. Whether you're just looking to manage your business and contacts on the go, a professional ninja, or just trying to get ahead of the game, mobile professionals look to LinkedIn regardless of location. So fortunately today, LinkedIn has released a brand new mobile phone experience which completely revamped their old design, with the general professional and every day use cases in mind. Its now easier to discover and engage with rich professional insights being shared throughout the LinkedIn network, along with a more engaging stream and personalization features.
Richer stream front and center
The LinkedIn mobile app surfaces relevant and timely professional insights into your home stream. This means seeing an engaging, vibrant and visual stream designed just for you with updates, news, original posts from influencers and much more. It's also much easier to join in on conversations with liking and commenting also available directly within your stream.
Tailored to what matters most to you
LinkedIn has always been tailored to who you are, your network and your professional connections. Now the new mobile app offers even deeper personalization options via a brand new navigation page. Just slide the main homepage screen to the right to unlock a customizable navigation page, preloaded with your favorite features on-the-go.
With 64% of LinkedIn members now outside of the US, they've expanded support for more languages which include Dutch and Norwegian for the iPhone, and Turkish, Dutch and Norwegian for the Android. This now totals 15 available languages for both apps including: Bahasa Indonesia, Bahasa Malaysia, English, German, Spanish, French, Korean, Italian, Japanese, Portuguese, Swedish, Chinese (Traditional, Simplified), Turkish, Dutch and Norwegian.
According to LinkedIn:
There is much more in store for mobile this year, including more search and personalization updates. In the meantime, download the new mobile phone app for iPhone or Android and tell us your LinkedIn mobile story via our LinkedIn Company Page or on Twitter with #limobile. We’d love to hear how you’re using LinkedIn mobile. Your story could even be featured in future blog posts!
So what do you think of the new LinkedIn mobile experience?
