LinkedIn Introduces Simpler Navigation Bar

LinkedIn began rolling out a simpler main navigation bar today, building on efforts to make the site easier to use.

The new navigation bar includes sections for the user’s Profile, Network, job postings (Jobs), content streams (Interests) and a search bar.

“When approaching this re-design, we analyzed years of navigation data to determine which links were adding the most value for you, and which could be removed to create a more focused and streamlined experience,” the company said.

The bar disappears when the user scrolls down the page.

The feature will roll out to all English-speaking users over the next month, according to LinkedIn.
