In an effort to increase user engagement, LinkedIn (NYSE:LNKD) has redesigned its products over the past few months. This time, the company is giving its navigation bar a face-lift.

Soon, when LinkedIn users log onto the site, they will see a simplified menu of tabs at the top of the page. In providing a more streamlined experience, members will access their settings and account options through their profile picture.

Perhaps most striking is that LinkedIn has placed the search bar front and center. Recognizing that search is a productivity tool, the company thinks the redesign will help users find what they're looking for more efficiently. 

Over the next month, LinkedIn will be rolling out the new navigation bar for all English-speaking members worldwide.
