After forcing its users to switch to Timeline, Facebook is now working on a new design layout of the profile. Facebook has confirmed it is testing the new design, which is likely to have more information and links into the cover photo that appears on top of profile page.

According to reports, the new Timeline will have user name, home location, occupation, education and other basic information over the cover photo, with white fonts. Facebook is also going to add a “Summary” tab, which will have a list of user's remarkable “Life Events”. Other changes Facebook is considering to incorporate is replacing the current “Likes” with “Favourites” and putting “Friends”, “Photos”, “Map” and the new “Favourites” into a smaller strip below the cover picture.

Facebook had introduced Timeline feature last year, replacing site's then profile page. Timeline profile is more like a list of the recent updates in a chronological manner. The profile displays photos, videos, status updates and locations shared by user. The new Facebook profile is split into two main columns, with a line in the middle, representing the passage of time. Facebook started rolling out Timeline to all users in January this year.
