Microsoft completed its acquisition of LinkedIn in December of 2016. The assimilation of LinkedIn into the Microsoft universe started with a very botched rollout of the new LinkedIn website interface in the 1Q 2016. LinkedIn is now reacting to that rollout.

What is LinkedIn doing?

LinkedIn is building user experience consistency across all of the platforms (phone, tablet, computer) and at the same time is pushing features out of the basic free subscription to higher paid subscriptions. At the same time, they have removed features that LinkedIn felt did not offer value to the subscriber.

In this session, Marc will hypothesize why some of the changes have occurred, where features that you hold so dear have gone, and what features might have been removed and are now coming back.

Bring your laptop, phone and tablet to walk through the new interface with Marc in an interactive and fun experience.
