LinkedIn Gets Fancy

“The professional network is rolling out a new profile design for its premium members Wednesday, a new look that includes a larger profile photo and a customizable header image that spans the width of the screen. Users can either upload their own image, or select from a gallery of header images provided by LinkedIn.

The new look is similar in style to other major social networks like Facebook and Twitter, which are becoming more visual in their designs. Twitter began rolling out its new design in April, and just recently completed the transition for all users last week.

LinkedIn’s new profiles are only available for premium members right now. The rest of LinkedIn’s members — those using the service for free — are expected to get the new look in “a few months,” according to a company blog post.”
