Today at their annual f8 conference, Facebook founder Mark Zuckerberg introduced significant redesigns and changes to the popular social networking site.
Here’s our guide to the “new Facebook” – from the changes we’re already seeing to some we can expect to roll out over the next few weeks.
Facebook has completely redesigned your profile page. Instead of being a wall with tabs, your profile is now called “timeline” – a way to tell the story of your life on a single page. Scroll down the timeline page year by year and see the stories of your life as uploaded to Facebook in chronological order – like an incredibly well organized digital scrapbook.
Facebook decides which stories are more important than others – and you have the ability to “fill in the blanks” with the years before you had Facebook. That means breaking out your old photo albums and uploading those childhood pictures – get ready to scan, scan, scan!
