I teach recruitment professionals how to search the internet effectively and part of the class covers using LinkedIn. It's been a roller-coaster ride recently, with the new interface and almost daily changes to it, as LinkedIn addresses the growing chorus of frustrated users upset at the loss of functionality, slowness of the webpage, and confusion over where features now sit, so it's good to see a response from their Director of Product Management. The comments made on the discussion also make for interesting ready.
I'll be delivering a webinar in the next couple of weeks on the new interface, hopefully by then it will have settled down a bit.
At LinkedIn, "Members first" is one of the core tenets of our engineering process. "Members first" means listening to our members, deeply understanding their needs, and building products that meet them. It also means acknowledging when you didn't get it quite right.
