Facebook Takes Brand New Avatar, More User Friendly Now-sorpack

News-and-Society SOCIAL NETWORKING favourite Facebook is all set to roll out a revamped homepage. The brand new features added to make it easier to find notifications, news photos and chat. Facebook engineer Jing Chen said in his blog, "Over the past few months, we’ve been testing several different designs of the home page to improve navigation to and discovery of commonly used features." The left bar will now include links for your news feed, messages, events, photos, and more. Expand the photo section to see recent albums and mobile uploads from friends, or uploads you’ve added yourself. A "Friends" tab, meanwhlie, "will help you find friends, see which of your friends have recently updated their profiles and filter your News Feed by Friend Lists you may have already created," Chen said. Facebook has added a red bubble on the left-hand corner near the search bar. Click on that and a drop-down menu will display all your new notifications, like if someone tagged you in a photo or commented on your Wall. The "Home" and "Profile" links are now on the top right with the Account menu option, which lets you log out or check privacy settings. The social networking site has also expanded the left-hand bar. "The left menu has been organized to make it easier for you to communicate with and discover content from your friends," Chen wrote. "You can now access your messages and other core features all in one place, to the left of your News Feed." An edited version of chat has also been added to the left-hand bar. It will not include your entire friends’ list, just those with whom you chat frequently. To see everyone, open the full chat bar on the bottom right or click "see all" on the left-hand menu. Facebook is also trying to make it easier for users to interact with apps and games. Click on "Applications" or "Games" on the left bar and Facebook will display those apps you’ve interacted with most frequently, as well as display activity from friends. "You will also start to see counters next to the applications you have bookmarked on your home page," Chen wrote. "Counters will notify you when you have a specific action to take, so that you never miss your turn in a game or an update from a friend in an application." About the Author: 相关的主题文章:
