TODAY'S FEATURE - Blog #3565:
This is just a quick 'weekend edition' of my blog to show those of you that are not my Facebook Friends about the 'new look' that my Facebook personal profile page is sporting as of this morning!
I had already been an 'early adopter' of the upcoming 'Timelines' look that Facebook is going to before the end of the 2011 year.
However, I decided to emphasize two things on my own personal page a little differently than what I started out with on Thursday.
First is the larger photo, called the 'cover photo'. I decided to use the 1973 photo of myself at the 1973 San Diego Comic Con, that was held at the Sheraton Hotel on Harbor Island in San Diego.
The inset 'profile pic' or 'avatar' is now a photo taken of me at the December 2011 Nuke the Fridge Con, where I had my first book signing held for 'Gotham City 14 Miles', (GC14M).
So almost a 40 years span at the top of my Facebook personal page!
Which shows my two passions: Being an online (& occasional on site at a con) comic book dealer, plus my love for comics / tv history, which in this case was combined for my chapter in the GC14M book!
Usually I'm not an 'early adopter', but in this case I found that the two column online newspaper look that 'Timelines' is sporting was something I wanted to jump right into!
Now I realize that my own Facebook 'fan' page will probably need to be 'upgraded' also... But I haven't seen any announcements on any upcoming changes there to that format.
But you can never tell... As Facebook changed the 'group pages' format earlier in 2011, and now the 'profile pages' have been changed! Just a matter of time before the 'fan / brand pages' are revised too!
Anyways, I'm limited to the number of Facebook Friends I can have, with the number of fan pages that I also 'Like'. So I wanted to share this 'new look'with all of you that can't add to my 'friends list'.
Take a look at your own Facebook profile and start playing with it, as you have seven days to complete your revision before Facebook publishes it to the world!
Yeah, I know the holidays season is upon us... But hey, this is a cool holiday gift for us to play with !
Talking about pages...
