Facebook Confirms Testing New Timeline Design

Facebook confirms it is testing new Timeline design with just one column for posts – The Next Web.

Facebook recently started testing a new version of its Timeline design that cuts the number of columns for posts from two to one. While there are still two columns, the left one is for items shared on a user’s profile (Wall posts, status updates, and so on) while the right one is for everything else you want on your profile (boxes for Friends, Photos, Places, and so on).

In fact, the column on the left is made wider to accommodate all posts while the column on the right is narrower but still manages to include active modules. Facebook manages to pull this off by simply making the content on the right taller instead of wider (for example, the Friends box is 3×3 instead of the current 2×4).

Here’s how the new design looks, courtesy of Inside Facebook:

We reached out to Facebook to confirm this isn’t just a glitch, and boy were we thankful it isn’t. “This is a new design Facebook is testing with a small percentage of people to make navigating timeline even easier,” a Facebook spokesperson told The Next Web. Great, now roll it out to me so that I can finally scroll down someone’s Timeline without feeling like my eyes are playing ping pong.

This is how Timeline should have looked like from the start. It’s seriously annoying to keep jumping between posts on the left and right sides, not to mention trying to figure out the chronology of them.

Playing devil’s advocate, there are some minor flaws with this change. First of all, there’s no longer a line down the center that is supposed to make the profile look like a “timeline,” although I doubt many users will care. Furthermore, the right-column is empty if you scroll down too far, which results in quite a bit of wasted space.

Nevertheless, I’m personally hoping this test goes well and that Facebook decides to move all users to this new look.

What Type Of Social Media Personality Are You? – Infographic

In 1921, psychologist Carl Jung changed the fundamentals of his field. By distributing a psychometric test called the Myers-Briggs Type Indicator to patients, Jung claimed he could accurately boil down the psychological types of humans into 16 major categories.

Still in use today, the metrics determine whether test takers tend toward certain character traits, such as introversion (I) vs. extroversion (E) or thinking (T) vs. feeling (F). Once taken, test results produce an acronym per individual. For example, “ISTJ” is for an Introvert-Sensing-Thinking-Judging person.

The infographic below, based on data by CPP, publishers of the Myers-Briggs personality assessment, details the qualifiers for each of the test’s characteristics, but furthermore, predicts the psychological types most likely to participate on specific social networks. More extroverts reported using Facebook than introverts, for instance. And people with inclinations toward Feeling spend more time browsing and interacting with people on Facebook, rather than those who tend toward Thinking.
