Facebook Unveils New Profile Pages
Instead of hiding most of your personal information behind the 'Info' tab, the new design features an introduction at the top of your profile page that summarizes your job, relationship status, hometown, birthday and more. Beneath your summary is a row of the most recently tagged photos of you. Because these are highlighted so prominently on your profile, you'll probably need to be even more vigilant than before in making sure bad party pics or embarrassing high school candids are removed. Fortunately, you can hide any of the photos in your new Profile summary by clicking the 'x' that appears when you hover over each one.
Friendship Pages that debuted in October are now integrated directly into the profile page; you'll find a Friendship module showing off shared photos and friends at the top right of profiles you visit with a link to explore the more detailed Friendship Page.
Facebook now visually displays most of your personal info (including music interests, college and employer) by using photos instead of text links. Your personal likes will become easily browsable grids of movie, book and album cover art. Additionally, your photo albums now have infinite scroll, so you'll be able to scroll or tap the space bar to move quickly through hundreds of photos.
As usual with Facebook, it's not immediately clear how to activate the new Profiles. Though it will be rolled out slowly to everyone, you can get early access by heading to the Profile page introduction. '60 Minutes' teases the new design below:
