Facebook reveals improved look

Facebook has unveiled a new look and new user functions on the social networking site. It will invite users to try out the features by adding a link from the existing site this week.

It has also overhauled the advertising placement on the site with ads moving to the right hand column to “better fit the design”. It will also increase the number of ads shown in the column. Facebook says that placements will give advertisers “new options and a meaningful space for ads, while being useful and unobtrusive.”

It has also introduced a “publisher” feature to users’ walls, which will allow people to add content, such as photos and videos, to their friends’ profiles. Users will also be able to try out applications before they choose to add them.
