Yesterday morning, during the annual F8 developer conference, Mark Zuckerberg and his team announced a few major changes coming to Facebook and its users over the next few weeks.
In case you didn’t catch the live feed, check out the post over at the Facebook blog for more details.
Two major features to watch for:
- The Timeline (the new profile)
- The Social Graph
Both features are revolutionary in their approach and possibilities for users. Facebook developers are helping “polish the edged” as Mark put it, and I can tell you, both features are awesome!
Here’s a quick glance at my profile as it stands …
Just a quick glimpse at what’s in store for the next few weeks. Facebook really did a nice job creating this excellent user experience in my opinion. It looks like a great way to organize our life stories, which as many over the past few years haven’t been doing. We’ve been sharing our lives with each other, but not organizing it all into a central place.
If you’re wondering whether Facebook or Google+ will win the social network war … seems only time will tell. My two cents? There’s room for both … in fact, if there really is a social war, it’s actually between Google+ and Twitter.
