New Facebook Timeline Layout Rolled Out with New Page Design

Yesterday Facebook released a new design for profile for limited users. Just before a week after official announcement of change in New Feed and deign of Chat box (Recommended to Read) today Facebook test a new interface for timelines. It seems that Facebook focused to provide simple and user friendly design. Two major changes are being observed in Header section, and in Content section.

As you can clearly see in below my complete profile page that, in size of cover photo is remained same but some of links like Add Friend, Message, Activity log, including username are pulled up at the bottom of cover photo. And in place of username (old Layout) new tabs took place like Timeline, About, Friends, Photos, and More (with no thumbnail as in previous); Music, Movies, TV shows, Books, Likes, Notes, etc. While navbar remain same.

In this release Facebook split content section in 2 columns. In the first or left column all of the link which are placed in place of username from About to Notes are arranged as big rectangle boxes with thumbnails. And in the right column all of Your posts and life events are aligned vertically.
Now all the things which you care about are organized into sections. You can easily customize your left column by choosing which sections are show up on your profile and then drag to reorder them. And don't worry; by hiding a section, individual stories can still appear on your timeline, on News Feed and elsewhere on Facebook. To change who can see that's in a section, just edit the privacy of the individual stories.

About page design is also changed and now its looks more cool, with grabbing all of information in just one page, in full and semi page horizontal sections.

In last as a comments, after these updates to timeline looks, I'm sure that these updates to timeline looks will definitely help to refresh Facebook popularity. One thing which I also want to mention here that, I have noticed that above mentioned changes are only made to only few users of Facebook, and this design is under testing. So the people which get changes in Facebook timeline can also see others profiles also in new look, and currently there is no option for them to go back to old layout. And those who didn't get any change are unable to see advanced Facebook timeline even of those who got new. So, you guys only have an option to wait to get the , until they also upgrade your profiles.

  1. They forced me into this new layout and while it was changing it said I could go back to the old layout. Now I cannot see how I can do that. I am not happy.
