Facebook Now Looks Just Like Tumblr, And That's A Great Thing | The "New Facebook" | Scoop.it

The new Facebook Timeline profile view isn't just a visual revolution for Facebook profile pages. It's a conceptual move that defends it against visual blogging platforms like Tumblr which are becoming social networks unto themselves.

No longer is your profile page a list of posts and links. It's now a collage of sorts, almost like a Tumblr blog. And that's exactly the goal for Facebook.

Facebook is gaslighting the web. We can fix it. | The "New Facebook" | Scoop.it

Facebook has moved from merely being a walled garden into openly attacking its users' ability and willingness to navigate the rest of the web.

I learned a lot about the future of Facebook and get a good demo of how this stuff works.

Here Mike Kerns, who runs social and personalization at +Yahoo! News talks to me about the effects Yahoo has seen thanks to the inclusion of Open Graph technology from Facebook (AKA "frictionless sharing").

I think this could be the future of Yahoo's strategy. Why? I know this will be an unpopular view here, but you can't ignore the effect that they are seeing "the numbers have beaten all of our expectations," Kerns sees. Over 10 million people joined. 600% increase in traffic from Facebook to Yahoo. Demographic shift: marked increase in users under 30 years old.

There is no doubt that if you’ve been on Facebook lately, you’ve noticed the News Feed Ticker. You can’t help but see it on the right side your Facebook page, no matter which page you’re on. It’s constantly updating and scrolling the list of updates that were on your News Feed. Because it is constantly changing, many people have called it information overload.

The Ticker has the same information as the News Feed and more. It includes posts and the activity of your friends, like commenting on others’ posts, liking pages, adding applications, photo etc. The Ticker calls these “activity stories”.

It's going to bring lifestreaming - formally a geeky activity based around RSS feeds - to the mainstream. In my view, Timeline is the smartest and most significant thing Facebook has done since launching a developer platform in May 2007. I think it's that important.
