Facebook Rolling Out New, Clutter-Free Timeline

Facebook is rolling out a redesign of timeline for users in the next few weeks, some lucky users have already received access to the new layout.  The new design focuses on a significant reduction of clutter on the page making it easier for users to navigate and consume content more effectively.  The open layout follows a chapter from the Google+ design team with added white space, easy navigation bars on the sides and top graph actions on the left side of the page.

The profile page follows the design flow with a single steam pane on the right side with larger images and white space around the text.  The most used buttons have been added on the top navigation giving users quicker access to the content they need.  Large thumbnail images have been added to the left pane of the page including your photos, music and other recent activity making it visually pleasing and easily accessible.

Facebook is giving users more control over their content by redesigning how we share our music, movies, TV shows and books that interest you.  “If you’re a movie buff, you can add your favorites to your movies section or use apps like Flixster and Netflix to share what you’re watching.”

Now, you can track your favorite books with your friends and organize them by “Read”, “Want to Read” and “Likes.”

You can also add your favorite apps to Facebook and share them easily with your friends including the popular Instagram.  The design elements of the application make it very visual and easy to interact.

If you’re interested in the new design, head over to Newsfeed and sign up.   Tell us what you think about the new look under the comments.
