Facebook Testing New Timeline Format With Single Column of Posts

Be prepared for another change to your Facebook profile: Timeline could soon be getting a makeover.

The social networking giant is testing a new design for profile pages that has eliminated the current timeline format, which features two columns separated by a line. It retains the bar

of dates in the right hand column so that users can search posts of different years and months. The right hand column of the layout retains the boxes like “Recent Activity,” “Friends,” “Photos” and “Likes” and also the app activity displayed by users.

The current format is a two-column layout which includes posts on both sides forcing users to look back and forth. In its new incarnation, Timeline no longer has the vertical line that divides a profile in half. This change makes it look less like a timeline, according to Inside Facebook, which revealed the updated design. Clickable dates that help users navigate through profiles, however, are still listed on the top right.

It is reported that in the new design, the boxes are of a smaller size than the actual posts. The space below these boxes where the current design would display more posts is featured as whitespace in the new test design. Facebook announced the new Timeline feature and claimed that navigating through profiles will be easier.
