CNET News Video: Zuckerberg introduces Facebook's new look

3:01 /

At the F8 developer conference in San Francisco, Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg introduces a revamped profile page called Timeline, which gives people a chance to look back on everything they've ever published on the social network--along with new features that make it easier to share media content such as music, movies, news, and games.

-Millions and millions of people have spent years curing the stories of their lives and today this is no good way to share them. So, if your original [unk] was the first 5 months of your conversation and the stream was the next 15, then what I will show you today is the rest. Timeline is the story of your life and it has 3 pieces. All your stories, all your apps in a new way to express who you are, but first thing you're gonna notice is that it's just a lot more digital. Down the bottom here, you have all your stories. So, here's a nice visual-- this is a photo of bunch of engineers of Facebook who [unk] on the products [unk] today. Over the right there, you will see years and you can just use that to quickly get to any point in your life and you can just see all your comment. In the middle here are these visual titles. You can get to all of your apps and all the stuff that you've done in any of your apps and of course on top is covered photo, so you can express who you are. All your stories, all your apps, a new way to express who you are, it's all here. So, now, let's a look a full timeline, and here we go. You scroll pass, rolls up all the stuff in your life, create photos, map and places that I've been, some food that I cooked, a Mark Zuckerberg doll, some friends that I meet, all the places that I've been to, and just keeps going and they are all the years of my life right there all the way to the bottom. Now, a notification in the corner and I can see Austin listen this [unk] that he [unk] for me and this is actually one of the coolest parts of the whole product by being able to click on someone's music and play it is a great experience, but knowing that you've helped a friend discover something new and that they like your taste in music and that you now have in common is awesome. So, when someone discovers something from you, you got a notification and, you know, of course I like the songs. I just go ahead and play it right here. Alright, beautiful.
