People need to acquire latest skills with the help of completely modified and data-driven platform. The best we could do is to provide it through LinkedIn Learning Program”.

Desktop Overhaul:

Along with social learning, LinkedIn is providing a redesigned look for its desktop experience that will be much simpler. It will give users a more intuitive experience and this design will work for the foundation of the LinkedIn’s future networking system.

The redesigning of the system is under process and is expected to appear soon. Efforts are being made in order to make the platform a place for more relevant content that can provide users with latest and trending news. LinkedIn is also planning to introduce bots over its platform that can perform tasks relating to messaging service.
