LinkedIn, the business-oriented social network is releasing a major redesign to its home page, it announced on its blog today.
The new design looks like a combination of what users like best about Facebook and Google+ -- less cluttered and focused on news updates that will be more relevant to you.
At the top of the feed you’ll find articles and news updates you’ll most likely be interested in based on what your connections and industry leaders are reading and discussing.
LinkedIn has also refreshed the look of the stream with bigger photos. You won’t need to click on updates to see more. The goal is to make it easier for you to see what your connections are commenting on and so you can join in by liking or sharing updates that are important to you.
The new home page will roll out to all users over the next few weeks.
Have a look:

You know Facebook. You’ve heard of Twitter. And maybe LinkedIn. But Google+? What’s up with that?
Google+ launched a year ago and has amassed 250 million users, according to its announcement at the Google I/O conference in June. Many people think it’s an alternative to Facebook, as if it’s either/or but there are actually some key differences that could make it worth your while to be involved Google+ even if you don’t want to give up Facebook.
Now, I’m not suggested you jettison Facebook in favor of Google+. Facebook is simply too big to ignore, but adding Google+ to your social media quiver would be well worth considering.

With the price of commercial real estate dropping it’s a great time to lock in long term lease rates. Sometimes locking in that rate may require moving offices. Recently two of our clients moved offices.
The rainy season is upon us! Wouldn’t it be nice to stay at home, dry and out of the rain with a nice cup of hot chocolate? The only problem is, it’s Monday morning and you need to drive to the office. You’re stuck on Highway 99 because there’s been an accident, and you were already running late because your car battery died from leaving the headlights on all night. As your mighty vehicle is constrained to a mere crawl towards the office and your windshield wipers struggle to keep up with the downpour, you notice that you’ll need to fill up more gas soon, even though you swear you just filled it up.
