Facebook’s new timeline transformed to a single column design emphasising on efficient management with the new changes on the timeline feature. The refurbished features were live in New Zealand with other territories next in line (exact date not yet known). The new features place special attention to the messages pasted on the users’ home page.
The new design cleans up Timeline headers by rearranging the links of ‘Friends’, ‘Photos’, ‘Maps’ and ‘Likes’ in a separate menu. The relationship information has been discarded from the header, which might be Facebook’s own way of saying that they are focusing to keep personal details private.
The social networking site has been testing the revamped design of the Timeline since October last year along with the new privacy changes.The right side of the Timeline shows ‘Friends’, ‘Recent Activity’ and other non-messaging updates. The highlighted posts can no longer be stretched to across the screen.
The right hand side of the Timeline on Facebook goes blank after some time since messages appear only on the left side as opposed to the earlier messages, which were present on both the sides of the Timeline. The ‘More’ tab allows the users’ to access a wide array of other activities like Maps, Movies, TV Shows and Music.
Open Graph applications like Instagram, Spotify, Foursquare and Flipboard also get their own specific settings. Messages have been given priority in the new Timeline design from Facebook in addition to making the timeline easy to navigate. What do you think about the new Timeline changes?
