Facebook is overhauling profiles as we speak and the changes will be hitting your personal profiles soon. Perhaps by the time you read this, it’s already happened and you are scratching your head thinking, “Why, oh why to they have to mess with a good thing?”
Well, just because it isn’t broke doesn’t mean that Facebook won’t be fixing things up and their latest shake-up is the new Timeline feature with three key areas of the page – Cover Image, Activity and Apps. The new layout is two columns underneath which is meant to organize and prioritize your more influential or important updates. Rather than people seeing an endless streams of the day-to-day posts, they’ll be face-to-face with key events in your life.
Your cover image spans the full top part of your screen, rather than just the left corner of your profile. That’s a whole lotta picture, so choose carefully.
Your key bits of activity are organized underneath your cover image and is now placed in two columns. You can choose what you highlight and what you lose in the shuffle, but it’s yet to be seen if many people can be bothered…
Your Application Updates
Spotify is one of the new hot apps that shares what you’re listening to in real-time with your friends. Well, now apps like these have a home on your profile so even more people can judge you based on your music tastes.
Although this isn’t hitting business pages, there is certainly a makeover planned for pages as well. We just hope it has as many visual aspects so we can tell our own stories!
