The professional social network has been stepping up efforts to simplify its desktop and mobile experience, and the new navigation bar is aimed at helping its users with productivity, according to a blog post on LinkedIn.
The menu of tabs has been simplified to only display links that are of most value to users, while the search bar has been moved front and center. Settings and account options are in the upper right-hand corner – hover over your profile picture to get a drop down menu. (See the new navigation bar above, the old below.)
All English-speaking members of LinkedIn will get the new navigation bar over the next month, the social network says.
LinkedIn currently has about 225 million users and recently celebrated its tenth anniversary. Just this month, it also passed 20 million registered users in India, its second largest market behind the US.
However, the social network recently lowered its forecast for second-quarter growth, an indication that its growth may be slowing.
