Facebook testing new Timeline design that uses one column for posts

Facebook testing a new Timeline layout that puts all posts in one column, active modules in another

No longer will your eyes have to ping pong back and forth as you stalk someone of Facebook. Well, that is if Facebook's new Timeline design tests go well. Facebook has confirmed that they are running a trial design that puts all of a user's posts in a single column. Two columns are still present on a user's page, though.


The second column is used for some of the things it currently is, namely active modules. The left column is made bigger in the trial design, while the right-hand column has been made narrower. Active modules are now taller and thinner and continue to show all of the same information that they did in the old design.

"This is a new design Facebook is testing with a small percentage of people to make navigating timeline even easier," a Facebook spokesperson told The Next Web.

Take a look at the new design and let us know what you think of it in the comments. I, for one, am excited about these changes, though I'm still majorly against the Timeline profile in general.
