There was another Facebook update earlier tonight.
No, seriously. It's all over Twitter. Just go search "Mark Zuckerberg" because the world's youngest billionaire was on TV...on none other than THE 60 Minutes this time, to announce a HUGE Facebook redesign.
Wait, didn't he just make a HUGE announcement like two weeks ago? Yeah, but that one was about how Facebook is going to take over email, SMS, messages, etc. and put all your communications with that special someone in one single thread for you to trail all over cyberspace.
This announcement was going to be even bigger than the last one. Yes, I'm well aware that this is what they (i.e. social media pundits, journalists, websites, etc.) say each and every time Facebook makes an annoucement. But this time it really was going to be BIGGER.
This time, it had to do with photos. Apparently, the desginers at Facebook had decided it's time to re-emphazie the fact that Facebook is all about photos. So...they came up with a re-design to emphasize just that - photos...you know, to keep things visually interesting.
As if Facebook isn't interesting enough.
So, don't take my word for it. Here's the report from Tech Crunch: http://techcrunch.com/2010/12/05/new-facebook-profile/
And if you missed the 60 Minutes episode, here's a re-cap, courtesy of Mashable: http://mashable.com/2010/12/05/mark-zuckerberg-60-minutes-interview/
It's just about to get more interesting for 500 million of us. In the days to come, we'll be eagerly looking out for our re-designed profile pages. Until then, I should go update my Facebook status.
