Facebook rolling out changes to profile pages – Facebook began rolling out changes to member profiles on Sunday adding a new snapshot of biographical information at the top of the page and a bar of photos in which a user has been “tagged.”
The new profile pages should be available to all of Facebook’s more than 500 million users by early next year, Josh Wiseman, a Facebook engineer, said in a post on the Facebook blog.
Wiseman said the changes are designed to make it easier for a user to “tell your story and learn about your friends.”
At the top of the new profile is a bio section highlighting where a member is from, where they went to school, their relationship status, where they work and other personal information.
Directly underneath is a bar of pictures in which a member has been recently “tagged” by their Facebook friends.
Facebook members can also highlight their most important friends on the page, create new groups of friends or share activities and interests such as favorite musicians and sports teams.
“All your interests and experiences are now represented with images, making your entire profile a more compelling visual experience,” Wiseman said.
Facebook unveiled the new profile pages ahead of an interview with founder Mark Zuckerberg on the CBS show “60 Minutes” airing later Sunday. (Agence France Presse )
