Facebook users will see their timelines tweaked a little bit differently in the near future.
According to The Next Web, the social media site is testing out their new timeline in New Zealand, which includes a single column in the middle for status updates and a “like” button that would encourage more people to notice featured pages. Facebook has made it a practice to test new features in New Zealand before rolling them out worldwide.
The single column for status updates and uploads, which will take up two thirds of a Facebook user’s timeline, would make it less confusing to Facebook users frustrated with the current two-column status updates. Besides the switch to the single-column layout for status, the new Facebook revamp will place its “About,” “Likes” and “Friends” sections on the left-hand side of the timeline and the years on the far-right hand side.
No word yet from Facebook on when its updated timelines will go live worldwide.
