Facebook Starts Testing New Timeline

Posted May 22, 2012

Facebook has started testing out a new look for the Facebook Timeline. The new design of the Facebook Timeline has a subtle change that involves moving the user’s name, home location, occupation, and education on top of the “cover photo.” The text is in white, but this could be an issue for people that have a photo with a white background unless the text automatically turns black in those cases. The new Timeline has a new tab on a user’s profile that says “Summary.” Summary shows a list of major Life Events for that user. The “Likes” section of a user’s profile is renamed to “Favorites.” It is unknown whether this new design will become the standard or if it will be completely scrapped.
