Elo all readers and Facebookers.
A few minutes ago, when I logged into my Facebook account, the new home page had already been rolled into my account!
Indeed, this new version of the home page has been launched since a few days ago, and was made available to users since 11th March 2009.
As you have probably noticed if you have the new profile layout, the horizontal tabs (links, photos) have now been moved to the left (vertical) while there is a new section on the right sidebar called Highlights.
The new homepage is not the only change brought to Facebook.
Here are the other changes:
- Facebook pages(Fans) have been renames to Facebook Public Profiles
- Facebook is having rounded corner pictures 😛
- Facebook status message and wall
You may not have noticed it yet, but there is a big change in facebook status message and wall, see below.
When replying on someone’s wall, like below
Your friends will see the following on their home page
be more careful when writing on walls, it more visible to others now!
- Over 40 languages are available on Facebook.
lol, try to change your language to arabic, the layout even changes to suit the language!!! wow!
However, be careful, and all your friends will know what you have been doing, check the following update!
- Facebook publisher
I have not yet understood this change, I quote :
The Publisher on your profile has been updatedThe Publisher in the box above your Wall has been updated to match the one on your home page. No matter where you use the Publisher, your posts will appear here and in your friends’ streams, provided they can see the post.
- Facebook Live chat for applications
A new feature is the integration of facebook chat into applications, directly.
This has been made available to developers.
btw, Facebook announced that it has over 190 million users, with over 700,000 new users everyday!
That’s all for today…
Looking forward to see every blogger in today’s meeting! Be there!
