In what is the biggest update in nearly two years, LinkedIn is taking advantage of Pulse s capabilities to provide news from different quarters in an organized manner. The new UI, sporting a bolder and cleaner look, turns the app s update page into a continuous news stream, wherein a user can like, share or comment on any update.
A user can also follow Influencers , who are prominent people from one s industry to get their latest news and updates on one s profile. LinkedIn has also introduced ads in this update.
