A look at the new linked in profiles and how they managed to pull it off so easily.
I spent a few hours on the LinkedIn campus a few weeks ago, with the sole mission of learning more about the new LinkedIn profile redesign.

Not only that, but there are many different types of LinkedIn users who are on the site for a slew of reasons: people looking to connect, people looking for a job and recruiters looking for talent. How do you design and redesign one site to make all of those people happy? That’s what I set out to learn. Read the full story on the new linked in profile change here.
