Identified Gets a Redesign and Upgrade

Identified has updated their website to have a new look along with some new features. It appears they may be moving towards a professional networking website instead of, or in additional to, a job application service. What has and is changing will not be fully known for a few weeks as they slowly implement the changes. What we know so far:

  • New look - Cleaner look with more data
  • Scoring/ranking - Individual values are given for your work history, education, and network that are added together to give you a total score. This ranking is used to rank you at the companies you are working at or have worked for, as well as your ranking within your network
  • Metrics - Number of times you have been shown in searches and the total profile views
  • Upvote/Downvotes - Possibly a type of recommendation tool
  • Followers - The number of people following you
  • Gmail address book import - To find more followers
