Facebook is the most popular social networking site in the world with over 800 million users. With so many people making use of this social networking platform, it is important that Facebook brings about changes which can help people make the most out of it.
In 2010, Facebook rolled out a new home page design. For most people, this new Facebook home page is easy to use, while for others, it is confusing. If you are confused about the new home page, there are a number of things that you must know about so that you are aware of the changes that have taken place.
A number of users have still not been able to figure out how the new home page works. In this guide, we will look at some of the changes which have taken place and how you can use the new Facebook home page.
First of all, it is important for you to understand the design of the new Facebook home page. The new design includes navigational and few other changes. The new home page now has six main components. These include news feed, requests and notifications, Facebook chat, birthday and event reminders, online friends and account privacy and settings.
Even the search option has been moved from the right hand side to the center. The search box is used to look for friends, find out what users are talking about, Facebook pages, groups and so on.
The location of the log out button has also changed in the new Facebook home page. This button is not visible on the home page, but you can log out of your account by going to the Account menu and selecting Log out from the menu.
There have also been changes to the location of the notifications tab. Previously, you’ve been able to find your notifications in the lower right corner. Now, it is located on the top left of the Facebook home page.
In addition to this, you can also prevent anyone from seeing your application activity. This includes your friends as well. The applications and privacy settings page can be used to restrict your friends from seeing what you are up to when it comes to gaming on Facebook.
One last thing to know about the new Facebook home page is that you can view your news feed by friends list. Facebook has not removed the friends list, but you need to click on the icon representing your friends to view the feeds.
