Facebook to begin rolling out new profile page

The genesis of Facebook continues. Yesterday, via a blog post, the social networking site announced that it would be rolling out a new, more intuitive profile page for its users. The new landing page, which houses all of your personal details, offers a new introduction, featured friends, an improved way to share favorite music, movies, books, and television shows, and better photos and friend pages. The goal of the new layout is to enable viewers of your profile to learn more about who you are and who you’re friends with in less time. For example: where you work, live, and attend(ed) school, whom you are in a relationship with, and when you were born are now prominently displayed on your profile page.

The new feature will be rolling out to all users through the end of this year, but if you are anxious to try out the new goodies, you can head to http://www.facebook.com/about/profile and manually enable the new style. If you take the plunge, let us know what you think. More →
