Here are some of the new enhancements that you’ll begin to see in a few weeks:
- Left navigation, to help you get to the most popular features more easily.
- A new larger profile photo, a popular request. Be sure to upload a higher resolution photo of yourself!
- New full profile view, which lets you and your friends see your info, interests, badges, testimonials and recent photos and videos.
- New fullscreen slideshow for photos.
We will also have a few more surprises for you in the next month, including updates on communities and new limits on friends, photos and videos, so stay tuned!
