LinkedIn members are now able to upload images, documents, presentations and other kinds of files to their status updates. This new feature will allow users to visually showcase their professional stories on their profile and homepage to be shared with their connections.
Uploading content is simple for users. The process is quite similar to uploading files through e-mail. You will notice a paperclip icon on the right side of the share option. All you need to do is click on that icon, select the file you want and post. Another great feature is the URL sharing option. To share a link to a site or blog, simply paste the address into the share box. If you want a thumbnail from the site to appear with the link, click the small checkbox in the corner.
LinkedIn has enabled select company page admins to add images and other kinds of files to their page updates. The new features will be rolling out to personal users over the next few weeks, so not everyone will be able to access the paperclip feature right away.
Other LinkedIn changes include a simpler navigation bar, fresh profile layout, updated homepage design, and a revamped mobile app.
LinkedIn has been focusing on improving the site and making it easier to use for its members. The new navigation bar has been designed to simplify users’ on-site experience.
For example, the search bar has been relocated front and center, allowing users to quickly find what they are looking for. Scrolling over the profile image will give users a drop-down menu providing quick and easy access to account options and settings.
