Wow, Facebook is growing up right before our eyes as it 6 years old yesterday. As part of the birthday celebration Facebook also rolled out a new design to about 80 million of its over 400 million users.
Facebook founder and CEO, Mark Zuckerberg had this to say in a blog post:
So to celebrate six years of Facebook and the 400 million people on the service, we’re doing what we like doing most—building and launching products for people. Tonight we’ll host a celebration at Facebook headquarters, and we’ll release a handful of new things that will improve people’s Facebook experience, including a couple that people have requested a lot. We’ll post more details to our blog in a few hours.
The new design that Mark mentions offers some new ad units as explained by Nick O’Neill which could help the site to monetize better. Check out a couple of screen-shots of the new Facebook design, thanks to Matthew Sanders (below).
Has the new Facebook design been rolled out to you yet? If so, what are your thoughts on it?
