New Facebook Profile Design: Do You Like It?

By Posted 6 Dec 2010, 17:36

Facebook have unveiled their new design of profile pages to the social networking world that gives gives us a string of new features — including latest photos, core information and a better representation of who we are.

The problem is though that more often than not, when Facebook updates it’s look, it does not go down too well with its users.

The new design brings recently tagged snaps to the fore, and puts them right at the top of your profile page meaning that you will have to be quick when de-tagging photos you do not want the world to see.

Core information is now listed directly underneath yours or your friends name that includes where you studied, where you live, your relationship status and your date of birth. The basic information that used to be underneath your profile picture has now moved into a more subtle place in your ‘Info’ section, meaning that any custom-designed text you had there before will now not be visible upon entering the profile.

The newly integrated ‘Friends’ section has been made much more prominent too, meaning that you can easily categorize your friends into saved lists — making it more accessible to you, and others to see what friends come under specific categories and lists.

Overall, I think Facebook have hit the nail on the head. As stated before, Facebook’s track record of updating the UI and design has not been well received by users of the social networking site — but we have had no choice than to deal with it.

This time around though, I think they have got it just right. I think it looks current, and gives me the ‘real’ information I want to see when looking at friends profiles.

The real question is though, do you like the new Facebook profile design?

    On Wednesday I updated to the new (but NOT improved) facebook profile page. I’ve tried for 2 days now to change my relationship status, and I’ve not had any luck. I’ve checked ALL my privacy settings, and I don’t see anything wrong. The person I’m in a relationship with has ME listed, yet I received no “confirm this” notification.

    Any advice? Has anyone else experienced this?

    Thanks!

    Beth, I'm having the exact same problem. He could change his and tried to link to being in a relationship with me, but I can't change mine and didn't get the confirm request. It's so annoying!

  • Paige

    I agree.. i need to change my relationship status but cant :(

  • Ashley

    I'm in the same boat. the edit tab for the relationship status does not exist

    Hi guys,

    I had the same problem for the last hour. Here's the solution:

    1. Click the "Edit Profile" button in the top-right corner of your profile.
    2. Select "Featured People" from the left-hand menu.
    3. You'll see the controls to change your relationship status and add specific relations.

    Have fun!
