LinkedIn overhauls its desktop website

LinkedIn changes its messaging feature. It brings the social network in-line with its rivals, adopting a design that contains obvious parallels with Facebook and Twitter. At the heart of the experience is the new navigation system.

The new LinkedIn desktop site design features seven core areas on the bar navigation: Home, Messaging, Jobs, Notifications, Me, My Network and Search. There are also more, easier to find links to newer projects at LinkedIn that it also hopes to push more in the future, such as LinkedIn Learning, which it launched at the same time as it previewed this desktop refresh in September. Now, you have to be logged in to see full profiles (you can still go incognito in your settings if you want to stay anonymous to the person, if not LinkedIn itself). There's a new focus on visuals and improved suggestions to help you advertise yourself effectively.

If the makeover, which launched Thursday, looks a lot like the professional network's overhauled sleek mobile app - well, that's part of the master plan. The new feed is also theoretically smarter about showing you trending topics and news from industries you care about, but without actually seeing it in action it's hard to say how different things will be here. Typing into the box will surface results including people, jobs, companies, groups and schools. You can refine your search by using multiple filters. Messaging has also been overhauled. A new messaging interface is active throughout LinkedIn and the company says it will start helping its users with conversation starters or ideas to spark new connections that could advance their careers. The system will look familiar to anyone who's used Facebook Messenger on the web. Fortune contacted LinkedIn on that and will update this story as needed.

The business social network, which Microsoft acquired a year ago for $26.2 billion, is rolling out what it calls the largest desktop redesign since its inception.

LinkedIn has been given a desktop redesign to bring its site closer in line with its mobile app and make the platform more "intuitive" for users. The professional social network today launched a redesign of its desktop app that created to reduce clutter and puts conversations and content in a more prime location.

LinkedIn, whose design has been criticized for years, showed off the design's capabilities in a video published today (below).
