Facebook announced on its blog Tuesday that all users will have Timeline within the next few weeks, bringing a close to the gradual rollout process that began September 2011. Timeline changes the old Facebook profile from a list of your recent updates to a summary of your life since birth. Among its new features is a cover photo at the top of your profile and a timeline to which you can add life events not previously captured by Facebook. The new profile is thought to be one of Facebook’s most extreme redesigns so far, redefining what a social networking profile can do. Whether you’ve already switched to the new feature or you’re baffled by the new look, read on for Mashable‘s roundup of Timeline resources to help you with the transition.
It’s the worst-kept secret on the Internet: Facebook Actions, a new way of interacting with apps, content, and brands, are coming to the social network. At a private event in San Francisco Wednesday night, the social network announced a slew of new partners are using Actions, the Facebook feature that will let developers make just about any verb a semantically cross-indexed link. What does all that mean?

Lors de la conférence F8 que nous avions largement relayée sur ce blog , Mark Zuckerberg avait présenté ses nouvelles applications sociales, avec notamment l’apparition de nouveaux verbes en complément du désormais célèbre « J’aime ». Un premier lancement fut fait avec Spotify, Deezer, Netflix… et les verbes “Listen”, “Read”, “Watch” (et leurs équivalents français), mais les marketers et développeurs attendaient impatiemment la suite, et notamment la possibilité d’utiliser / de créer des verbes pour leurs clients. Selon AllThings , cette attente devrait prendre fin ce mercredi, à la suite d’une « mystérieuse » conférence de presse donnée par Facebook. Le champ des possibles est vaste et chez We Are Social, nous sommes impatients de participer et d’observer cette nouvelle évolution de la plateforme. Quelques remarques néanmoins : que l’on soit en train de “Cuisiner”, “Dessiner”, “Acheter”… ce verbe n’appartiendra jamais à une marque.

Information being shared on Facebook is highly diverse and coming to you mostly from people you rarely talk to, says the latest Facebook Data Team Study. The Facebook Data Team examined users' strong ties and weak ties by the number of comments, messages and photos people have in common. It turns out, those old friends and acquaintances you only see at reunions, influence your media consumption more than you might think. Don't discount the memes or news links your weak-tie friends share.
When Facebook launched Pages late in 2007, big brands finally had an opportunity to use the social networking platform to better connect with fans. Soon after companies signed on, well-known personalities and public figures started to use the new Pages tools to publicly bring their communities together online.
At Socialbakers, we started a nice tradition of bringing you Facebook Yearbook Infographic, which maps growth, top ranks of countries, brands, public figures, and most checked-in places and pinpoints interesting social media statistics. The Facebook statistics of age distribution shows the fastest growth in marginal age ranges of young people and elderly (more than 50%) which indicates Facebook penetration to grow in these groups as well. Remarkable fact is that more than a half (55%) of total Facebook users are (only) in top 10 countries led by USA, Indonesia, India and Brazil.
While it might be nice to hear from Facebook well-wishers on your birthday, you should think twice before posting your full birthday. Beth Givens, executive director of the Privacy Rights Clearinghouse advises that revealing your exact birthday and your place of birth is like handing over your financial security to thieves. Furthermore, Carnegie Mellon researchers recently discovered that they could reconstruct social security numbers using an individual's birthday and place of birth. Rather than remove your birthday entirely, you could enter a date that's just a few days off from your real birthday. <p style="text-align:right;color:#A8A8A8"></p>
If you think parents are keeping tabs on their kids’ Facebook profile pages and pictures, you’re absolutely right. According to a new infographic released by market research firm Lab42 , parents are keeping a watchful eye on their child via Facebook, with many checking out their pages daily (43%). The study — which was conducted among 500 social media users – found that 92% of parents are Facebook friends with their children (of all ages) and more are turning to the site to monitor their kids’ interactions. Safety was named as the top reason for looking at their profiles (40%), followed by curiosity (15%). But 55% of parents are also making sure the site isn’t it interfering with homework, chores or other activities.
Selon la toute récente infographie publiée par le service de social bookmarking Add This , Facebook représente 52,1% des partages online en 2011, preuve s’il en fallait que la diffusion des informations est de plus en plus sociale. A noter également dans cette infographie l’incroyable croissance de Tumblr comme plateforme de partage, la croissance de Chrome en tant que navigateur de partage (et la chute de Firefox, qui reste néanmoins devant Chrome), l’essor du partage depuis les terminaux portables (mobiles, tablettes). Le sujet qui aura généré le plus de partages en 2011 ? La mort de Ben Laden… Si vous avez aimé ce post, pourquoi ne pas vous abonner aux infos de We Are Social par email ou flux ?
