Facebook Logo Extremely popular web based hangout joint has been reloaded to offer the best for guys hanging out there. The changes are within how face book members communicate with each other and how they share photos and updates about their lives. The facebook.com has an expanded Wall, the section of a member’s personal profile page where friends can leave comments and photos. Users will now be able to add items more easily, and the Wall will incorporate reports on a user’s activities. The facebook.com is desperate to become the central hub of online communications. It’s working hard to reorganize its layouts this summer to reduce inconsistency and improve information easier to find. Facebook.com is investing in privacy so as to avoid privacy backlash and has gone ahead to alert facebook.com users of the changes in recent weeks. Facebook gave an overview of the facelift in May and told away its plans to let users start testing it this week. A complete switch won’t occur for at least another week or two.

The changes are based on the growing comfort people have with sharing details about their personal lives more frequently and in smaller bursts such as on the “microblogging” site. ‘Users are apt to share a single image and even update the one-sentence status message on their profile’ said Mark Slee, lead product manager at Facebook. On top of that, Facebook profiles are loaded with information generated from games and other applications that Facebook started letting outside developers write last year. The Facebook redesign seeks to make these now-disparate pieces of information easier to find at a central location. Facebok.com site is to organize information into tabs to reduce haphazard setting. This will make users to get more control over what appears on their feeds, and also have the ability to add as well as delete individual items.
