Have you seen them already, the new personal profiles from Facebook? You for sure can get creative with them. I had fun adding some pictures for everybody to see. Just watch, that you are not too big in the picture – then you can’t see the pictures very well. The difference to the old one is that you can tag yourself in pictures and those pictures appear at the top of your profile. Additionally, there is some basic information about you right at the top. All together it is meant as a conversation starter because you can see right away, what you might have in common.
Another change is that you can feature a certain group of friends. So, if you want to highlight your family, you can feature them to give the Facebook community a chance to learn more about you and them.
You can add a lot more detailed information, like which classes you took in college, which projects you work on at your job and other interests. Everything is represented through images, which makes the profile a lot more colorful. I just started playing with it and I will keep you posted on my findings.
Since Facebook is rolling the new profile out slowly, not everybody has the new version right now. you can get the new Facebook profile right here: http://www.facebook.com/about/profile/. Just sign in to your Facebook account on that page. Then you will see at the right top corner a green button “get the new profile.” Click it and there you go. Now, you can add (or change) the information you want to display.
