Facebook is conducting a small test of its Timeline redesign, on the popular social networking site, the company has confirmed.
Not revealing how many users are being included in the test or whether the redesign will be adopted universally, Facebook said the layout change condenses the top of users' Facebook Timelines into a smaller area by moving their names and other basic information to the right of their profile picture.
According to the Los Angeles Times, the information will lie on top of users' cover photos, which is overlaid by a black shadow that fades into the picture, similar to the style used for people's names in the "Friends" box located under the top section of current Timeline profiles.
The new Timeline look also adds a "Summary" button that shows a list of users' "Life Events," and changes the "Likes" section to read "Favorites."
However, like every Facebook redesign, complaints have already started coming in from users.
