At the top of the profile page is a large cover image, giving users a place to add a little character to their Timeline.Hovering over this area will pop up a ‘Change cover’ CTA which takes you through the process of updating thisimage.The cover image is generally displayed at 851x315px, but as a user’s browser height shrinks, the page automaticallyscrolls to display more information above the fold.Beneath the cover image is a summary of information about you. Your job title, education, location and hometownor relationship status are all displayed here, with an “About” link that leads to a page with more detailedinformation. To the right of that, there are a series of four tiles: “Friends,” “Photos,” “Map,” and “Likes,” thoughthis area can be expanded to also show other information, including recent apps using the new Open Graph verbs(which, for example, are being used by Spotify and social readers like The Washington Post).
As well as being able to navigate to “Friends,” “Photos,” “Map,” “Likes,” and other content on the top of the page,users are able to explore a Timeline by year and month. On the upper right corner of the profile page is a list of years, which can be drilled into to view activity that occurred during those times. This makes older contentdiscoverable and increases the ‘stickiness’ of a user’s profile page, making it a destination that is interesting toexplore instead of just a list of things that user has recently been doing and posting.
Status Updates & Life Events
Status updates will work much like they always have, but you’re now able to add more context by posting a “LifeEvent.” “Life Events” cover everything from relationship status changes (which should be familiar) to weight loss tohaving a baby to taking a trip or getting a piercing. With life events, you can add photos, tag people and places andadd dates.
