I warned you several weeks ago that on March 7, Facebook would be rolling out a new look for the personal profile timeline. And right on schedule, they began the change. Of course they can’t make the change to everyone at the same time, but many of us are seeing the new timeline. I got mine this past week, and I have to say I’m pleased with the changes.
You won’t see any change to your newsfeed, only your profile timeline. The biggest difference is that Facebook has changed the feed to a single column instead of the two-column look. I prefer that because it was confusing to find something when I had to go back and forth across the page.

If you’re not sure which is which the screenshot above is your newsfeed. The screenshot below is the new look of the timeline on your personal profile.

Another good change is the size of the images that accompany each post. These are quite a bit bigger. That’s good because it means you’ll see more of the image without having to click on the image directly.
There are still two columns on the feed. But the left column is an extension of the ABOUT section. While the about section is still a tab at the top of the page, it’s also highlighted at the upper left of the screen. Below that you’ll find your FRIENDS listing.

Also note the CHAT icon in the bottom right of the screen.
