New LinkedIn UI is Slow

By | January 6, 2017

I don’t know how many people have the new UI in LinkedIn. I can’t seem to get out of it. (Yes, I tried)

  1. It’s slow af. Come on guys. You have buko resources. You should focus on speed, speed, speed. This is unacceptable.
  2. It’s ugly af. Look at the picture above. Seriously, is this an improvement? Looks lame to me. I hate the icons at the top.
  3. It’s confusing af. I don’t know where shit is anymore. I get used to stuff being in a particular spot. Stop moving it.

Congratulations LinkedIn! You hit the UX trifecta. Slow, ugly and confusing. Pat yourselves on the back while I struggle with this nonsense. This animated gif expressed my frustration well.

    Is there a way to revert back to the previous UI? I’m with you; I hate this new look and I can’t find shit either.

    I agree with your first point 100%. Slow as hell. The 2nd and 3rd… I hated the old clumsy UI, this is better for me, so opinion based. 🙂

    OMG its like they have taken a step backwards 10 years, slow, ugly, and pissing me off

    Yep… it’s facebook all over again. Is there anything that Microsoft can’t screw up?

      Thanks Obama. (Sarcasm, blaming everything on someone other than the true culprit. In this case engineering at LinkedIn.)

    I’m here in Switzerland: extremely slow in the new version, but nobody is complaining. What a world. Keep fighting . :-O

    Yup. I know the old version wasn’t enormously popular, design-wise, but it was at least usable. I’m literally sitting here commenting on this whilst waiting for people’s profiles to load. Also, they should have sorted this out by now, since the roll-out was a few weeks ago. They’re screwing themselves here.

    It is STILL slow and now the whole world has to use this new version…and still as ugly as anything. Using here in South East Asia.
