Facebook is inviting reporters and journalists to its Menlo Park headquarters on Thursday, March 7th to show off some brand new features — most notably, brand new designs for Timelines and the ever-popular News Feed, the two most heavily used features on the world’s biggest social networking site.
According to Mashable, a redesigned version of user Timelines is already being tested in other countries, and someone sent them some screenshots of the new design, which features a few subtle changes to the layout of the page. (See below)
But perhaps the biggest change on Facebook will be when they release the newly designed News Feed, which has been tweaked a few times over the years, but hasn’t really been dramatically changed since 2011. But even that wasn’t necessarily a “major change” from when the feature was first introduced in 2006.
Of course, as soon as Facebook announces the changes, expect about 999 million of its 1 billion users to gripe and complain about them for at least a month or two, while the other million who agree with the changes try to convince the gripers and complainers that “change is good.”
