Here are the features of The New #LinkedIn Profile 2018. I will compare the old and the new.

Here is the old version

The differences are the old version had your picture centered in the middle of the page. The new version has your #LinkedIn avatar on the left side of the page. The banner stayed the same size and dimensions.

Your Banner

Your Headline:

Old headline contained same information just different location

Your Summary:New summary has three lines of info avaiable so it gives you a little more opportunity to market your business.

Old Summary had only two lines of time to address your services.

Your Contact information: New contact information is in view on right side. Click on link and you have LinkedIn URL and websites.

Contact info opened if you are connected

Addendum: New Contact information 2018; Remember ONLY your 1st degree connections can see your email unless On the new contact information you have the option to making your email address visible to people you are not connected to.

Old contact information you had to click on the “SHOW MORE” link to find someones contact info. If you were connected to them you had access to the email and phone number as well as their LinkedIn URL.

Your Mobile LinkedIn profile: Your mobile information remained the same profile picture in the middle contact headline and summary were not changed. One bug in the mobile versions is LinkedIn will duplicate your Headline (I don’t know how many people this effects, but I’m one of them) in the summary section.

How You Should Edit The New LinkedIn Profile Headline?

More importantly is WHY you should edit your LinkedIn headline.

There are twenty five reasons to make changes to your profile.

Number one, should be to incorporate keywords into this section

of LinkedIn. The reason for keywords here is that the headline is

the most heavily weighted area for search.

The headline is the first impression that other LinkedIn members see when they view your profile. Does

your headline tell others what you do? Does your headline tell others who you help? Does your headline

tell others how you can solve their problems? More importantly does your headline emphasize your “UVP”

(Unique Value Position)?

The LinkedIn headline is the most important piece of real estate on your profile. It is the ONLY totally

customizable section that you can personalize on your LinkedIn profile!

Reasons two through twenty four are all the actions you perform on LinkedIn. Actions such as joining a

group, endorsing someone’s skills or expertise, commenting on an article, adding connections, or sharing

an article with your LinkedIn connections.

The last, and maybe the most important reason is that when someone searches for your name on Google your

whole LinkedIn headline show up in the search results. If your profile if optimized like your headline

your LinkedIn profile will show up on page one.

How do you like the New LinkedIn Profile? Is it too simple?

Is it easy or hard to find the features you normally use?

I think it is easier. You just have to know where to look

on the new profile.

At the top left is Home, followed by Profile which has a drop down to edit profile. Next is Network which is your

contacts adding connections and finding Alumni. To the right of network is jobs. The next tool is interests which

has a drop down for Companies, groups, and influencers.

Directly above jobs and interests is the search bar. On the left side of the search bar is another drop down.

The default is to search for people. The other options are updates which has been combined with Signal, jobs,

companies, inbox, and groups. Most of these: people, companies, updates, and groups can be advanced searched,

which is still on the right side of the search box.

To the right of the advanced search is an envelope for messages. Next to that is a flag for notifications. The

next Icon is a + sign and figure of a head for adding connections from your different email sources. The final icon

to the right is your photo which has a drop down for signing out, account type, job posting, company page,

language, privacy settings, and help center.

Directly below those icons are premium solutions and upgrades to LinkedIn. So that is the run down about the new

profile look, and where all the tools are located.

Happy sesarching!
