F8 (Facebook developers conference) wrap up
I am guessing that a good majority if not all of you have realized that Facebook has made some pretty significant changes to its social media network this week. I know that these changes have been either hated or loved by everyday Facebook users. In this blog post I am going to try and relay the information that was presented by Facebook yesterday as to why the changes are being made and what we can expect in the future. The past 5 years of the Facebook era have been all about connecting you with the people you know and in that now that’s pretty much done its time to usher in a new era that’s gonna be all about sharing with friends. This means more integration of services that will make it easier to share things with people. there are also going to be a few new features released that are supposed to make facebook easier to use. One the these features in known as the ticker. You will find the ticker on the top right hand side of the screen. what the ticker does is take all the light weight things that people do (such as like comments and so on) and it shows them there. This is supposed to allow the news feed to be for only the important stuff (like status updates and so on). This feature has already been released and my personal opinion is I like it a lot, I feel it has cleaned up the news feed which is a change that I am all for. another new thing is the evolution of the profile which will happen over the next few weeks (according to Facebook). The profile will come to be called timeline. Timeline will be set up to act as the story of your life using the statuses that you post pictures, that you share, apps that you interact with, and so on. there really is not much that I can say about timeline as I have not had the chance to see it and play with it yet. All the changes really come at a key time for Facebook as Google+ just launched to the public a few days ago. In my opinion it will be interesting to see if Facebook and Google+ can coexist on the same Internet. All that is left for me to say is there is significant changes coming within the world of social networking and I am ready to ride the wave and see where it takes me.
