Less than a week after announcing a dramatically redesigned News Feed,Facebook has also started rolling out updates to Timeline, moving status updates and posts to the right of the page, while placing information from apps on the left.
Identical to what we saw being tested in New Zealand a few weeks ago, the new Timeline navigation swaps places with the ads that currently reside on the top right.
Your About information gets its own new widget-like spot below your photo, while your name moves a little higher, and is now overlaid on top of your Timeline image.
Facebook said that with the redesigned look, your About page can also be more heavily customized with your interests. Redesigned sections let you add music, movies, books and TV shows that interest you in the form of apps, placing them right alongside your photos and your friends list.
For instance, Flixster and Netflix’s apps can be used to show what you’re watching from your About page, and the Goodreads app can show what books you’ve read, and what you’re hoping to add to your bookshelf soon.
Facebook plans to roll out the new look over the coming weeks. Developers can learn more about making their apps part of the new look here.
