The latest solution to help Facebook users clean up their profiles to make their content work- or school-friendly is new iOS application FaceSaver, which claims to be capable of discovering “two to three times more” inappropriate content than other Facebook cleaning apps and services.
Not long after Facebook launched a feature that many compared to Pinterest, the site started testing something that’s more native to LinkedIn — a profile completion meter. The social network has also been asking users for their current cities.
Facebook hates fake profiles. The site has roughly 955 million users, and it wants to make sure that they’re all real people. Several outlets are reporting that the social network is asking users to report friends who may be hiding behind pseudonyms.
When most people think of a social media site that’s tailored to job searching and recruitment, the obvious answer seems to be LinkedIn. However, Facebook is becoming more prominent in those arenas just by sheer volume. Many of the site’s 955 million users are eager to connect their job applications to their profiles, according to Susan Vitale, chief marketing officer of recruitment platform iCims. Vitale told AllFacebook that through iCims’ technology, more people are tying their application to their Facebook pages than their LinkedIn profiles.
Should Facebook warn owners of profiles that violate its terms of service, such as those without users’ real names, before deleting them? Several “cosplay” enthusiasts who woke up Tuesday morning to find that their profiles on the social network had vanished think so.
A reader of sister blog Inside Facebook from Australia sent a screen shot that depicts Facebook timeline for pages on the social network’s iPhone application, suggesting a possible rollout of the feature more than four months after it debuted on the desktop version of the social network.
Facebook quietly rolled out a revamp of its help center, with a robust drop-down menu and access to help pages without users having to leave the page they started from.
Some Facebook users are seeing a test of a new design for Facebook’s timeline profiles, in which the profile picture moves slightly to the left, and information that usually appears below the cover image is superimposed over the cover image in white type.
