If you were to go back a year, you’d see a whole lot of rage directed towards the Facebook timeline redesign. If you were to ask today, many Facebook users wouldn’t even remember the controversy. However, seems like Facebook didn’t like its own redesign, so its tweaking personal pages yet again: select users, when they log in, will see a new personal page with the wall presented in a single column format. The wall again becomes a list, and they get the left side. Open graph actions, like all those apps you approved and then never used again, or the Spotify songs you recently listened (basically all the low-value detrius) gets the right hand side. I think it looks nice! 

Facebook’s also trying allegedly trying out another new feature: classified ads. According to The Daily’s Matt Hickey, Facebook’s got a plan to let users place classified ads (for jobs, or cars, or apartments) in other users news feeds. Apparently, this service will cost less than a normal Facebook ad (which anyone can buy.) While it might not beat Craigslist anytime soon, with Facebook’s mountains of data, it will certainly be targeted.
