Most of us are aware that Facebook loves change. While some of its users may not be so keen, there are more changes coming very soon. These will take the form of sixty new apps that members can use to share information on their profiles. It remains to be seen which apps prove to be the most popular, and whether users will be willing to get involved with them.
While sixty new apps may seem like a big number, it should pale in comparison compared to the estimated number of apps that could be built for use on Facebook in the months to come. A spokesman for Facebook speculated that thousands of apps could eventually be built for members to use in this way.
These initial apps were set to be launched on Thursday 19th January. They will allow each Facebook user to add some personalisation to their profile. This will be possible through the apps they choose, as they are extremely diverse. Some of those launching initially include apps for Rotten Tomatoes and Foodspotting. No doubt, food lovers will want to take a closer look at the Foodspotting app, while moviegoers will give the Rotten Tomatoes app a spin.
This is a major change for Facebook and it makes the Timeline feature more dynamic. As more apps roll out over the coming months it could completely change the social media site as we know it. What do you think of this new change?
