Facebook’s new features and updated look

Posted by Prashant on August 4, 2011 in Facebook,Social Networking

Google Plus is launched as a rival to Facebook and already got more than 25 million users within few weeks. Now to keep users interested, Facebook has added few features and also customized the look and feel in the past few days. In the recent past Facebook added Group Chat, Chat Re Design, Video Chat and now have come up with more updates as listed below.

Facebook’s “Expected Child” OptionFacebook Relation type

Facebook has added a feature that lets expectant parents add unborn children to the “Friends and Family” section of their profiles by selecting “Expected: Child” on the drop-down list. But the idea of a digital baby announcement has left critics saying the feature is both too impersonal and simply another way Facebook can target its users with ads.

 

Preview links in Comment Section

Now Facebook’s new Update is Link preview in Comment section. If you type URL link in the Comments, you can see the Preview of the link, same while you post a link in your wall.  Users also have option to remove the preview from the comment.

New look of Account Settings Page

Facebook has also changed the look of its Account Settings Page which looks much better and easy to use now.

Facebook Account SettingsNo settings have been added or deleted. Facebook has simply improved the design of the Account Settings page to make editing and updating your account information easier. Perhaps stung by criticism about the closed nature of its service, Facebook is also making it easier to export your own data. Unfortunately, the data that gets exported hasn’t changed and is still pretty limited.
