LinkedIn is rolling out a newly designed homepage. Browse through this slideshow to get a feel:

At the top, users will find a new dashboard with feedback on how they're doing.

It will show how many people have viewed your profile and how your status updates are performing. If you click on either of these items, it will give you more insights, such as who found your profile and how. It also shows how you rank across your connections, within your company, and other members who are similar to you. It lets you make quick profile edits to your profile as well.

"Nurturing professional relationships is important," says LinkedIn's Elizabeth Burstein. "Now it’s easier to stay connected with the people who matter to you – through your Keep in Touch box up on the right. Share a comment, say congrats, or simply like an update in just seconds. We bring you up to speed with the latest developments in your connections’ professional lives – and then suggest more people you may want to add to your network."

"There’s another reason we’ve separated your network and dashboard: to highlight the great professional insights you can read on LinkedI," she adds. "Get smarter and more informed for the day that lies ahead in just a few minutes by checking out the posts and articles in your feed that have been shared by your connections and written by Influencers and people that you follow."

The company is rolling out the new homepage this week.

In other LinkedIn news, the company just revealed its top ten Sponsored Updates from 2014.
