Facebook rolls out updates to Timeline, including cleaner layout


Your Facebook Timeline is getting another makeover.

The social network announced Wednesday a number of changes to users’ personal pages that will help them better express what’s important to them. The update also comes with a much-needed cleaner layout.

“We heard from you that the current Timeline layout is sometimes hard to read,” Facebook’s announcement detailing the changes said. “Starting today, all posts are on the right side of your timeline, with photos, music and other recent activity on the left.”

Facebook said it’s now easier to organize the things you care about on your About page. Users can list favorite music, movies, TV shows and books in redesigned sections. The new visual sections give you a way to add content from apps such as Pinterest, Etsy and Foursquare directly to your Timeline.

The Menlo Park, Calif., company said it would “continue rolling this out in the coming weeks.”

So far, my Facebook Timeline hasn’t been updated, but tell us in the comments if yours has been and if you like the changes.
