LinkedIn Visual AppLinkedIn on Thursday sent out an email that provides a new web app that allows users to view which users changed jobs or updated their profile in 2009, 2010 and in the first part of 2011.

You may recall that the visualization tool was e-mailed to members towards the beginning of 2011 and provided just 2010 stats information, apparently it was so successful the company wants members to enjoy it’s benefits all the time.

The program works by providing a collage of profile updates with headshots of each person in the collage, click on a persons picture and you are taken directly to that person’s profile.

According to LinkedIn principal software engineer Dhananjay Ragade, the idea for the mosaic page was chosen during a LinkedIn hack day, which occurs “one day a month when everyone is encouraged to play with new technologies and come up with something creative.”

Hopefully the app will eventually show daily profile updates, including job switches, rather than simply pushing new stats to users only when LinkedIn chooses to update the application.

With a LinkedIn IPO nearing closer we expect to see many new features that push the envelop for currently employed business users and job searchers.

What would you like to see LinkedIn add to their portfolio of options?
