Today Facebook introduced new features that will be implemented soon. At the F8 Conference, a Facebook developer event in San Francisco, the social network surprised everyone with new features and changes to user profile pages.
We summarize below the main announcements of the “big” social network, which already has 800 million users worldwide:
- Profile: The user profile changes and it will be called “Timeline”. This page is no longer viewed as a list of new updates, but a patchwork of user’s past and present life displayed in a visual and chronological way. The new “Timeline” is made up with small modules that will include a selection of photographs, a map with places visited, events that the user attended, and so on. The “Timeline” highlights the profile image, which dominates the top frame of the page.
- “Real-time Serendipity”: Facebook will bring online music that users will discover, listen, and instantly share with friends. Launch partners include Spotify, Rhapsody, MOG, Rdio, Soundcloud, Earbits, Vevo, Slacker Radio and Songza. In addition, Facebook partnered with Netflix and Hulu to allow users to watch movies and TV shows online.
- Applications: Developers can build applications that will not ask permission to post content on the wall every time they are used, but will explain what stories are published the first time the user gives them permission to post. Applications are classified into 4 main groups: Communication, Games, Media and Lifestyle.
