I notice that a site like LinkedIn feels overwhelming and clumsy to me when I'm trying to update my profile. I would guess that LinkedIn would hire some of the best developers in the world, yet it feels slow and clunky at times.
Facebook seems downright cryptic at times. Figuring out Google's myriad settings seems somewhat 'user unfriendly' as well. Twitter's and GitHub's profiles seem much more user friendly and functional for my purposes. Dribbble and Instagram seem thankfully simple.
Is it just me? Does it need to be so cumbersome and overdone?
I'm just wondering if this is mostly my experience, if there are best practices around this idea, if the LinkedIn website has 'issues' from the point of view of design experts, and if there are examples of very well done 'profile-type' websites anyone could point me to.
