Facebook has recently announced that they are making more changes on the website. Apparently, Facebook is testing out a new, slimmed-down version of its Timeline pages. The new design takes away the large, graphical rectangles for friends, photos, map and followers, and replaces them with smaller, text-only boxes.
TheNextWeb reports that ads were moved lower on each page’s right-hand rail, and the company is making it even easier to “like” individual pages. Apps, Likes, Notes and Photos are getting more prominence, moving to a special section on the left side of the page.
The changes are being quietly tested in New Zealand. Facebook will track engagement with the new features to see if they lead to longer session times, more clicks and better ad impressions.
If successful, the redesign will roll out to the rest of the world. Will these changes take place on March 7? I guess we’ll wait and see.
