LinkedIn, the most staid of the major social networks, is about to get a little more lively. But only in that buttoned-down kind of LinkedIn way, in which the height of excitement is the fact that you’ll soon be able to add a header image to your profile.
The company announced a handful of new features for premium subscribers today, but the biggest—and most obvious—change will be available to everyone in the coming months. LinkedIn is taking visual cues from other social networks, and will soon allow users to choose from a gallery of profile background images, or create their own.
“Noted” items are particularly good finds from my daily reading which I share via all my social media accounts.
