It seems LinkedIn keeps changing things up every time you log in. This can be very frustrating to say the least! As soon as you feel you have mastered LinkedIn…something else changes. Well, LinkedIn has recently made even more changes.  Though the recent changes are quite frustrating, the new profile changes are actually clean, simple, and tactical.

Better visual appeal

You can now add a personal gallery of presentations, videos and other graphics you would like to add to better showcase your talents.
