Thursday is the first day of spring, and Facebook shared some spring-cleaning tips for users looking to tidy up their News Feeds, shine up their profiles, organize their notifications, and get their privacy settings in order.
The ink is barely dry on Facebook’s redesigned News Feed, which it is still in the process of rolling out, and there is already a browser extension that enables users to return to their old News Feed layouts.
We reported last week that Facebook added a way for users to request their friends’ real (non-Facebook.com) email addresses, and it now appears that this functionality has been extended to all information not included in friends’ about sections.
Facebook added a teaspoon of Twitter to its test kitchen late last month with its test launch of trending topics, featuring popular hashtags in real-time. Now the social network is adding a liter of LinkedIn to the mix, experimenting with the addition of a “professional skills” section of its “about” section for users.
