LinkedIn Feature Update  - 
 
LinkedIn has rolled at least one user I know back to the old UI. He told me he's heard rumors that LinkedIn might be delaying their full roll out of the new UI now until May/June. Originally, I had estimated that the rollout of the New UI would have been completed by the end of March, but that was just a guess.

When he asked LinkedIn why, the reason they gave him was that only a small percent of users are on the new UI and therefore it made sense to be on the same UI as the majority.

Supposedly, LinkedIn did warn him that this would happen, but then it didn’t occur for a few weeks. Then, once day, LinkedIn suspended his account. He hadn’t done anything obvious to warrant a suspension. When he enquired, the LinkedIn safety team came back to him, apologizing, saying that the suspension was their error. However, when his account was reinstated, it had been reverted back to the old UI.

He wasn't sure if this "rollback" was due to a glitch on LinkedIn's part or if perhaps LinkedIn was being sneaky about something.

I've had one other colleague who has the new UI get their account suspended due to suspicious behavior, but they have not yet heard back from LinkedIn with an answer. I'll keep you all abreast of what happens to their account after it is reinstated.

What I'm wondering is if showing people the new UI and putting screenshots and tutorials online about the new UI is causing this "suspension" and/or "rollback" or if it's truly just a glitch that accidentally removed a flag that grants a user access to the new UI.

Does anyone else have any similar experience with the "New UI" and getting suspended and/or rolled back to the old UI recently?

+Victoria Ipri I would think that most LI trainers have access to all sorts of their clients' Linkedin account credentials and could easily test their theories regarding rollout and premium versus non-premium, etc. ;-)

I'm looking for insight into this issue...

A colleague of mine has the Job Seeker premium account with the new desktop UI already rolled out to her.

In the New UI, the search filters that she can use in her current premium Job Seeker subscription are:

- Relationship
- Locations
- Current Companies
- Past Companies
- Industries
- Profile Language
- Nonprofit Interests
- School

And then it says:

"Upgrade to Sales Navigator or Recruiter to unlock additional filters.
Function, Years of experience, +9 others"

In a different user's account, who has Sales Navigator, I see these search filters:

- Keywords
- Geography
- Relationship
- Company
- Industry
- Company size
- Function
- Title
- Seniority level
- Postal code
- School
- Groups
- Years in current position
- Years at current company
- Years of experience
- Past company
- Company type
- First name
- Last name
- Profile language
- Profile languages
- Interested in
- Member since

Does anyone know if the Business Plus plan will also have the same filters available as my colleague's premium Job Seeker plan does?

Will the only way to search by filters such as 'Seniority Level', 'Company Size' and 'Groups' to be to use Sales Navigator?

Their chemical-free alternative for exterminating bedbugs kills bed bugs and their eggs in one day. They also have the traditional chemical solution too though, which is more cost-effective, but takes longer to get rid of bed bugs.
