Facebook Personal Profile Changes | Courtney Engle

Facebook has rolled out an opt-in Facebook personal profile layout. The navigation now matches the rest of Facebook’s layout. You can opt-in to it here http://www.facebook.com/about/profile/

After reading Jesse Stay’s review of Facebook Lists, I dove in to change update my profile.  I wanted to show off a list, similar to my peers and leaders in the tech and social media scene as my Twitter Techies list.  So – I created a new list, added a few people to it, and then noticed something odd. Not that my list showed perfectly on my profile, it did, but that Mari Smith was getting a lot of traffic to a recent photo she’d uploaded about this topic – featuring me!

Mari got notified of my list

That wasn’t my plan, but in doing so, I learned a few valuable things about the profile changes.

  1. New Featured Lists notify people you add to the list.
  2. The privacy settings won’t let you block people from adding you to a list yet
  3. You need to see the privacy settings to control who can see your new lists.
  4. For more questions about the new profile, visit: http://www.facebook.com/settings/#!/help/?topic=new_profile
