Prepare for new Facebook Timeline design
Just as you were getting used to the existing layout for Facebook Timelines, it appears as though they're getting ready to change things up with a new design.
Some outlets are showing screenshots and comments from users in New Zealand who are getting a new Timeline design.
According to The Next Web, Facebook users in New Zealand are getting accustomed to a new layout for the pages that we once knew as profile pages.
The new layout isn't going to have you lost and confused, dazing with an empty stare at the screen. But it may take you a moment or two to get used to – and you can bet there'll be a group of people who'll start a petition to bring back “old” Facebook.
In any case, here's what's new...
Focusing on the top, the profile image (avatar) has been moved slightly down, giving more real estate to your cover image. A user's real name is also now on top of the cover image, rather than over white space below.
The Friends, Photos, Maps and Likes boxes have been reduced from visual buttons to text-only tabs in that white section.
From that screenshot, I was also intrigued to see that advertising was absent from the far right column (right underneath the area where it lists of years in your Timeline).
Could it be possible that Facebook is going to push more advertising right into the main activity column of your Timeline in an attempt to get more eyeballs?- Maurice Cacho, MSN Tech & Gadgets
