Facebook en de nieuwe profielpagina

Facebook voert gefaseerd nieuwe profielen in

Facebook introduceerde een half uur geleden een nieuwe variant van hun profielpagina. Gedurende de komende tijd rolt het netwerk de profielen gefaseerd uit, begin volgend jaar moet iedereen ‘over’ zijn. Zojuist zelf overgestapt, en ik moet wel zeggen: het ziet er clean uit. Vooral de korte informatie aan de bovenkant valt direct op. Als je het mij vraagt krijgt Facebook daardoor een zakelijker look.

Commentaar Facebook:

A New Introduction. The profile begins with a quick overview of basic information such as where you’re from, where you went to school, and where you work — the kinds of conversation starters you share with people you’ve just met or exchange with old friends as you get reacquainted. And since there’s often no better way to learn about a person than through photos, the profile now includes a row of recently tagged photos of you.

Featured friends. You can now highlight the friends who are important to you, such as your family, best friends or teammates. Create new groups of friends, or feature existing friends lists. I opted to feature my Ultimate Frisbee teammates, giving the rest of my friends a way to learn more about that part of my life.

New experiences. The profile also gives you new ways to share your interests and activities. You can list the projects you worked on at your job, classes you took in school, your favorite musicians and sports teams, and more. You can also share your life philosophy by connecting to the religions, political affiliations and people you follow and admire. All your interests and experiences are now represented with images, making your entire profile a more compelling visual experience.

Improved photos and friends pages. Thanks to the cool new “infinite scroll” feature, it’s now much faster and more fun to browse all your photos. The Friends page now allows you to quickly find the people you’re looking for: just search by name, hometown, school or a number of other dimensions.
