Facebook, Facebook and Facebook. This social networking giant is everywhere on the web. The way Facebook has progressed in the past some time is just awesome and the popularity of this social networking giant is quite clear from its user base. Facebook keep finding its way to news with its activities and changes. The biggest change made by Facebook was the introduction of Timeline and made it mandatory for every Facebook user. Regarding this, Facebook gave a week’s time to the users to switch to new Timeline, in early January this year. Most of the users did not like the Facebook timeline at the first look, but all are parsing it now.
Te end of year 2012 is near and reports are coming that Facebook is testing a new timeline design. It is tweaking the Timeline design to make it better than what it is now. This was brought into light by ABC News. Facebook rolled out the new Facebook Timeline design specially for a one of ABC News’ anchors on Wednesday, as posted by ABC News.

Well, before you think it as a rumor only, let me tell you that Facebook has signed the words posted by ABC News, and stated:
This is a new Facebook Timeline design and we’re testing it with a small number of people in order to make navigating timeline even easier.
ABC News shares that the new timeline design being in test mode by Facebook, has Tabs in it. The Thumbnails that you see in the current timeline, like the ‘Friends’, ‘Photos’, ‘Likes’ are not part of new design. In the new timeline design, the name of will move to the cover photo. The inclusion of the ‘Tabs’ in place of thumbnails in this new timeline design, will help profile visitor to check out the ‘About’ part, by staying on the same page. With this ‘Tabs’ coming in the new timeline design, one can check out the Timeline, Photos, About, Friends all those stuff on the single page. While the current design takes you to separate page. The stuff other Friends, Likes can be seen by clicking on the ‘More’ Tab. Precise number of followers will be shown in the new timeline design. For example, if any user has 99,201 likes, then it will be shown as 99k. A better way, a smarter one.
As the ABC News shares further, the new timeline design will put all the posts in single stream while the friends and other info will be on the right side. If this happens, then it would probably be the best feature in new timeline design, as in current timeline, one has to move from one side to another again and again to check the posts. The rumors were there in the last month that Facebook is about to put all the posts in single column
Well, as the current timeline was highly opposed by all the users, in its starting period, chances are there that the new timeline design, which may come anytime soon, will also be opposed. Facebook keeps bringing changes so to keep the user interested in it. In the 1st quarter of the year 2012, Facebook acquired the popular photo sharing app for $1 billion, and integrated it in Facebook for better image sharing experience.
As Facebook user, I am pleased with the new timeline design, but if all these changes that got aired in the news, are right. You must be on Facebook. Right? So what’s your view about the upcoming new timeline design? Do share your views in the comment box below.
