2017 - LinkedIn launched new desktop version with chatbots to keep up with CareerBuilder


LinkedIn is unveiling redesign of its desktop site, complete with a simpler, app-like look; a new messaging experience that appears as a pop-up on the homepage; and updated search features. LinkedIn said the new desktop version will be rolling out globally over the next few weeks. The new app is moving away from the busy pages of the past and attempting to reduce clutter by reducing the navigation to seven areas: Home (Your Feed), Messaging, Jobs, Notifications, Me (your old profile page), My Network, and Search. Besides LinkedIn has introduced its own form of chatbots. They are little helpers that will suggest things to talk about to “break the ice” with people. They will also suggest people you can chat with at companies if you aren’t even at the ice-breaking point.
