This means seeing an engaging, vibrant and visual stream designed just for you with updates, news, original posts from influencers and much more. It’s also much easier to join in on conversations with liking and commenting also available directly within your stream.

Tailored to what matters most to you

LinkedIn has always been tailored to who you are, your network and your professional connections. Now the new mobile app offers even deeper personalization options via a brand new navigation page.

I wonder how they plan to stay distinct from FB and G+. Sort of a complicated path they have chosen. They need folks to spend more time on the site, but I wonder how they create that attraction.
Daniel Zeevi
Well, it's pretty distinct from other networks given the special bio data each profile holds. They're certainly looking to streamline the news feed feel to be more like the other popular sites which is probably good for overall user experience.

Looks great. Any idea of a release date?
