More Changes – New Layout for Photos in Your Facebook Album

Don’t you just love change? If you’re a Facebook user, it’s just something you have to get used to, because it happens often doesn’t it?

Facebook only recently updated the personal profile format to include first, the ticker and chat sidebar, then the “Timeline Cover” profile photo and ongoing timeline for your wall. I have to admit, I’m a big fan of the panoramic-style timeline cover – it’s especially useful to add a  bit of business info like website and social media contacts to your personal Facebook account.

I like the new format for displaying images in photo albums. Here is some info on what’s changed. 

  • the image is much bigger (960 x 720 pixels) – but if your own picture is too narrow, you’ll see black bars (like in the one above)
    Facebook photo album layout - with PPC ads
  • description and comments are now at the right of the photo, instead of below it
  • the Facebook ads and sponsored stories are also on the right side, but only appear if there are few comments – so more comments means less ads visible on your album page (in the one above – no annoying ads; image at right – sponsored ads!)
  • ads appear on both your personal profile and on Fan pages for businesses

What do you think of the changes?
