Recently there has been a great amount of chaos on the stock market as the people who invested their money into Facebook actions accused the Facebook owner Mark Zuckerberg and the stock agencies of cheating and greed. Maybe the accusations were real and may they weren’t but one thing is for sure: Zuckerberg put some thought again into what his next step should be and he figured to do a Facebook timeline redesign. We must mention that his idea did show the needed success as the Facebook actions increased by more than 3% already!
While the controversy around the “older” new timeline didn’t end yet, here we go again with a new Facebook timeline redesign. Of course, criticisms appeared from the very first couple of minutes saying that this action will annoy Facebook users once again and some of them would feel motivated enough to leave Facebook and delete their profiles. However, since together with the thousand critics we’ve read lately we somehow accepted the timeline, there are high chances of accepting the newer version as well and the founder, Mark Zuckerberg, is aware of the love we share for his network and we know he uses this information into his own favor, but let’s face it: wouldn’t we do the same if we ran a business of our own?
What does the Facebook timeline redesign bring up again?
One might think that the current version would really need no more changes whatsoever. Maybe this time the changes are quite useful, since some of the information moved on to the cover photo. Okay, so let’s explain this action in details. Before, you were able to see your location, relationship status, working place right below the timeline cover. Well, for now, this information is moved onto the cover, adding a transparent layer on which your information is written. Also, the little thumbnails that were initially associated with friends, photos, likes, maps and others are now written in a simple layout, without the thumbnails. That is quite useful, it’s a lot easier to follow, saves a lot of space and puts the focus on your posts!
While the actual Facebook timeline redesign is running still in test mode, there are real chances that it will become permanent. Why is it only testing? They need to do that, it’s a major change, so problems, bugs, glitches and any other display or functionality related issues need to show up so that they can later correct these. The number of people who are allowed to run the test version of the newest timeline profile is unknown, but on the internet an idea-giving screenshot has been posted. Here’s that screenshot:
So yeah, frankly if we take a look at this, it’s a lot more organized.
Even if we find it joyful to criticize other people’s work we must admit that Zuckerberg, with this Facebook timeline redesign met our expectations and even surprised us! Let’s hope that the actual final version will be like on the screenshot or better and we’ll most likely love to use it on our profiles!
