new facebook profile page

Facebook just rolled out a new design for members’ profile pages. And based on early feedback from some of my Facebook friends who are not too busy to check their Facebook accounts during weekends, the new design is not that good. So, I checked it out myself – updated my Facebook profile to the new design and layout. And I liked it better than the old layout. Maybe it’s just me, as I seldom check my profile page before. If you want to check it out, hit the read link before this post to find out how you can update to the new Facebook Profile Page.

Wait, before you do that, let us give you a quick rundown of what has been changed to the new Facebook Profile Page. Here go, first thing you’d notice is that the profile page begins with a quick overview of various information about you such as where you went to school, where you work, your edutional background and other information that according to Facebook could serve as conversation starters. Just below this information is a row of recently tagged photos of you.

The new Facebook profile page now also lets you highlight important friends including your family, bestfriends or teammates. You can create new groups of friends or feature existing friends list.

Another new feature is a new way for sharing your interests and activities. The new profile page now allows you to list the projects you worked on at your job, classes you took in school and more. You can even share your life philosophy, religious and political affiliations as well as people you admire and follow. What’s good about this is that these are represented in images – making it more visualling compelling to look view.

Finally, your Facebook photo collection are now easier and more fun to browse and the Friends page now lets you find people via a better search facility by name, hometown or school affiliations.

Overall, the new Facebook Profile Page is a nice update. Let’s see if Facebook members would start complaining about it as more members update to the new design this week.
