    My first thought when looking at that picture: Does Michelle Obama not have a LinkedIn?

    You forgot Youtube as well! Instagram has a similar look as well.

      Instagram does have a similar look but it at least has the advantage of being dynamic.

      I feel that Twitter won't be the first to differentiate seeing as how they just rolled out. I'm assuming Facebook would be the first and get immediately hated for it. I'm not too familiar with LinkedIn so I can't really speak on that.

    I don't think they look the same at all. They share a similar layout.

    It's kind of sad, really. I mean, I am all for a cohesive UI/UX experience across similar social platforms — but at a certain point you have to step up the game up and dare to be different. Not for the sake of simply being different, but for the sake of innovation.

    It's like pop music...but I'll stop there. ;)

    I don't think this is necessarily a bad thing. This is just another design pattern at this point, because it works well and people are familiar with it.

    Yes. They do. Everyone copies everyone else because they think that will benefit them, this is all to common in web design.

      Agree. Working a lot in the online fashion space, incestuous design choices unfortunately become the norm. Clients RARELY want to be visually different :(

    This what focusing on UX (user experience) does. Instead you should focus on the product experience and how you differentiate yourself from the crowd — users want better products, not better profiles.
