Facebook Introduces New Profile Design for Users

Facebook has announced that it is introducing a revamped profile page for users, that will make it easier to tell their story and learn about their friends. The new profile pages will start with a summary of basic personal information such as job title, current location, languages, date of birth etc, in a more personalised way so that people can learn about each other more quickly. In addition, the new profile page will include a row of recently tagged photos of users as shown below.

Users will also be able to highlight important friends such as family members and team mates by creating new groups or featuring existing friends lists. Furthermore, the new profile will provide new ways to share interests and activities via image representation so as to provide a more compelling visual experience for visitors. In addition, the Photos pages will make use of a new “infinite scroll” feature that will make it faster and more fun to browse through all photos, with the inclusion of a more efficient search system.

According to Facebook, users who are interested in changing the look of their profiles can either do so now or wait until it is automatically changed for everybody in the next few weeks. As with all new designs, the new layouts will take some time to get used to but it will be interesting to know what the over 500 million Facebook users will generally make of it.

  2. Facebook really improves their services anytime. The interface are getting better each time I log in. The best thing though is its speed.

  3. Facebook is now roaming around the peak of social networking so they have to keep on changing and updating their service so that they can maintain the value of site before it upsets users like myspace or orkut did.

  4. I upgraded my profile page on Facebook yesterday and I am definitely impressed with it. The best quality of the new Facebook profile is the fact that everything is a lot more visual. I don’t think the change was necessary but I think it is a great move forward into the future.

  5. Facebook is now social networking king and they need to work so hard to maintain their image at this stage. Like they say “improvement is difficult at perfection” i am also using their new profile and this is rather more appealing with some very cool features.

  6. Social networking sites is very helpful to connect persons.Social Media Since Facebook launched its Pages product for brands in 2007. Many have used the service to share photos and video content with fans via their News Feeds.
