A year later, if you still despise Timeline you may be in luck: It appears that Facebook is testing yet another new design with its users in New Zealand, who traditionally receive updates and new features before other countries.
This design omits the About, Friends, Photos and Apps boxes now found below the cover photo. Instead, it opts for tabs, which you can expand in a column on the left when you click on one.
Another big change: Timeline posts are no longer broken into two columns; instead, the design reverts to the more linear view that you had before Timeline launched.
What do you think about the new design? Do you prefer it over Timeline?
