a href="http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=pl3vxEudif8">Ch-ch-ch-changes. Facebook, in an attempt to stay current and hip (haven't you seen The Social Network?), has just launched a new profile for their users. Screenshots are from Facebook's blog and are being displayed through fair use. As much as I love the readers of HackCollege, and would love to provide a more personal experience, I won't be displaying my personal profile for the sake of my friends' privacy (and maybe my own, too).
Some notable changes:
- The profile "snapshot". Underneath a user's name, the elevator speech of their life is listed. For me, work information comes first, followed by education, current city and hometown, relationship status (if in a relationship), and birthday. This is followed by a row of recently-tagged photos, which the user does have the discretion of choosing - in an attempt to show what the user's recently been up to.
- The profile "tabs" have disappeared, and now appear in a list off to the side, under one's profile picture.
