Minor Facebook Changes

Earlier this week, Facebook announced some new security features to their site in which a user will have to accept or reject posts, pictures, or videos that they have been tagged in before the post appears on their wall and Facebook’s news feed.

One more minor change that Facebook has introduced is the change of size of default uploaded pictures from 720 pixels to 960 pixels.   Any photos that have already been uploaded before this change will automatically be resized to fit the higher resolution.  Another side note, photos will apparently be loading into user’s browsers twice as quickly as before.

Finally, Facebook made some changes to its photo viewer.  Besides changing the position of the navigation arrows, Facebook also decided to dim the background (moving away from the complete black background from before).

These minor changes are starting to make people wonder what big changes Facebook will be bringing to their developer’s meeting in September.
