Facebook Holds Its Fourth f8 Developer Conference

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.

Timeline

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!
