The professional status update is assuming a new look as LinkedIn has decided to embrace photo and rich media sharing, meaning members can finally share more than text and links in their status updates.

LinkedIn said Thursday that members can now use the share box on the home page to upload images, documents, and presentations as part of their updates. In addition, members can attach videos and rich media content hosted elsewhere by pasting a link into the box. The service’s 2.9 million company page administrators also get image and file uploads with the release.

The update expands on an earlier release allowing people to add photos and videos to their individual profiles. It also marks a profound shift in LinkedIn’s 10-year career and signifies the company’s desire to make over its professional network into a visually stimulating zone — likely as a means of getting hip to the times and appealing to a younger generation of job seekers.
