  • LinkedIn is a career oriented social media network.
     
    With social media news feeds, it’s easy to lose content. This concept explores ways of improving the content within the feed and bringing job related information or general market news forward forward. How can news become more of a forefront for LinkedIn.

    Design/UX/Concept
  • "LinkedIn Today" is a simple way to have a refreshing News sidebar without taking over the actual newsfeed. It is something that is available to everyone and customized to their needs.
  • The updated homepage takes advantage of a three column grid using the left most column for articles and stories. Some big changes in the main content area is the seperation of stories shared from around the web paired with easily digestable updates from your connections.
  • Basic view of something shared on your feed. Large title typed paired with an image from the article as well as the source.
  • For the jobs page, I wanted to call out the latest and greatest postings, most relevant to your network as well as pull in the "newsfeed" from the homepage that relates to jobs. This brings the most exposure to the job listings that the user wants to see immeditaly before searching. However, the user can also filter these immediate results by thte always exposed and simple to use refine results sidebar.
  • News in relation to jobs is extremely important to finding out how to proceed in the market as well as just gather information. I found it hard to find articles once you've either clicked on an article or are just looking for a "landing page" for the news section. The latest article would function as the landing page with the navigation to browse more stories in the left column; this is kept light to not draw away from the article.
  • On the profile page, users would be able to select imagery/upload their own for their latest job to highlight it above their previous positions. I wanted to treat the projects section a little differently - it will live with each project and function similar to a tweet on Twitter, expanding when you want to view. Here you can see the expanded view of the projects. The current site lacks a connection between the projects and this helps to better tie them together. Again, similar functionality to twitter when you open and close a tweet. The entire area is essentially collapsable while also giving users the option for a "close" button.
