Professional networking site LinkedIn has said that it is testing a redesign of its website.

The moves comes few weeks after the website stopped displaying content from the popular micro blogging platform,Twitter.

The new-look is intended to make people want to stay on the site longer,according to a report that said the new site emphasizes building relationships and more effectively curates content shared by users.

According a report by TechCrunch,LinkedIn’s new look includes a menu bar that remains at the top of the page when you scroll down,and it has also switched to a darker look,with gray replacing the white background and black being the color of the menu bar.

The report said that the redesign also looks to make things much simpler to do,with the menu bar always near,it”s easy to create messages more quickly.

This is also consistent in the ‘people who have viewed your profile’ page,where a “Message/Connect” button now is presented next to the people who appear,The Los Angeles Times reports.

According to the report,the new look is definitely still a test.

Donna Serdula of LinkedIn-MakeOver.com pointed out that the new look disappeared when she left the home page.
