LinkedIn today announced that they are rolling out a new desktop publishing experience on the web. This new experience includes a sleek intuitive interface, more text and font options, and a beautiful new reading view that removes distractions and noise from the page. It makes it even easier for users to reach and engage with their audience on LinkedIn. Read about the new features below.
- A Sleek Modern Interface: We’ve created a clean new design and made the editor a full-width experience, so you can fully immerse yourself in your writing.
- Rich Engaging Multimedia: We’ve made it easier to add, move and resize multimedia with in-line images, videos, slides, podcasts, and more. You can enrich your articles, and your readers will appreciate exploring your content in a more engaging way. Just click on the Add Multimedia icon.
- Tagging and Distribution: We’ve also updated our tagging and distribution system to help surface your articles on LinkedIn. You can now add hashtags to an article before you publish, making it easier for professionals to easily discover and search for your content in the Feed (hashtags are now searchable on mobile and coming to desktop very soon).
For now, this new publishing experience is only available in the U.S. for now, and will be available to others soon. The full-bleed cover images, improved rich media embeds, and a sleek, new design will help authored content on LinkedIn look more beautiful than ever.
