The immensely popular social networking site Facebook, which has more than 500 million active users, has announced that it came up with a new Facebook profile that will provide a more enjoyable user experience to the millions of users out there. The new and enhanced Facebook profile is even easier to use than the previous one and it allows you to more easily stay in touch with the people you care about.

If you would like to try out the new Facebook profile, you can do so by heading over to facebook.com/about/profile/. But if you stick around for a bit longer, I will tell you what’s new in the new Facebook profile.

Here’s what you can expect to get from the new Facebook profile:

Summary
The profile presents a quick overview of basic information, like where you're from, where you went to school, and where you work. Furthermore the profile displays row of recently tagged photos of you.

Friends
Some friends are more important to you than others, and the development team at Facebook is well aware of this fact. That is why the new profile allows you to highlight the friends who are most important to you.

Sharing
You can share a more complete picture of how you spend your time and you can include the friends who share your experiences. You can also share your interests with others; the profile displays your top interests as a row of images. You can arrange your interests by dragging and dropping them.

“You can list the projects you worked on at your job, classes you took in school, your favorite musicians and sports teams, and more,” explained Facebook engineer Josh Wiseman. “You can also share your life philosophy by connecting to the religions, political affiliations, and people you follow and admire. All your interests and experiences are now represented with images, making your entire profile a more compelling visual experience.”

Convenience
The new “infinite scroll” feature makes it easier to browse all your photos.
Finding the people you’re looking for is easier than ever. In the Friends page you can search by name, hometown, “or a number of other dimensions” as Wiseman explained.

“We're really excited about the new profile. We're rolling it out gradually and plan to get it to everyone by early next year,” added Wiseman.
