What About The Concept Of The Privnotes For The Users?
It’s the biggest day of the year for all of us, and one that we’ve been looking forward to since December 2. That’s when Facebook finally launches its long-awaited redesign. And while it’s not quite ready yet, there are some hints as to what we can expect from its new look.
The big question is whether or not it will still be social enough to keep people hooked on Facebook for another two years.
Facebook had been hinting at the launch for months now. The company has even said its redesign would become available in “the coming weeks.” But with so many other things going on around the world right now — from protests over police tactics in Ferguson, Missouri to a deadly tornado outbreak in Oklahoma and more — it wasn’t clear if the launch was even going to happen at all.
But yesterday, the redesigned site launched. We won’t have any way to tell how successful that launch is until we see how Facebook users respond to it in the coming months.
There were plenty of changes to the site, including a new profile page at the top that shows your friends’ birthdays, photos, posts, messages, events, groups and likes. You can also click on those items to learn more about them, which includes information like who posted it, where it was shared and when.
Facebook says there are more than 800 million people using the service every month. It’s unclear just how much of that was exposed to the redesign, but based on the number of people who were able to visit the site yesterday, I’d say most or almost everyone did.
For those who weren’t able to get to it, here’s what they’ll miss out on:
– People can now search their profiles by name, making it easier to find old posts.
– Your timeline and feed are much cleaner. Instead of seeing everything that happened during the day, you can only see what matters to you.
– Your profile photo no longer appears next to the cover story (a summary of your recent activity). It’s gone completely.
– News Feed is now more personalized. When you go to the home section, your news stories are categorized into topics like “People you may know,” “People on vacation” or “People near me.” You can also sort them into different categories by clicking on the little arrows.
– Friends can now comment directly on each others’ posts. This means comments are now threaded, similar to Twitter.
– You can add videos to your profile without it appearing in your News Feed.
– There’s a new “about me” page with information like your gender, hometown and education history.
– Pages on Facebook can now be viewed by searching on Google.
– You’re no longer forced to read updates from pages you don’t follow. Instead, your News Feed will show an icon that indicates whether you should take action. If you do want to read something, you can click on it to access it.
– Photos of you and your friends are now grouped together.

What’s not changing?
– Messages. They’re staying exactly the same.
– Groups. They’re staying exactly the same.
– Events. They’re staying exactly the same.
– Places. They’re staying exactly the same.
It’s worth noting that Facebook isn’t calling this the new version of the site. Instead, it’s saying it’s the next generation of Facebook. So while the features are being added, the design and layout aren’t going anywhere.
If we talk about Privnote, then they are mainly the service provides who provide the users with quick and the quality of the service. The biggest reason that people plan to use the platform is that they provide the access to the users without even any of the registration process. When the person will write the message, a link will be generated that can be given to the person whom we wish to convey message
A lot of people are wondering what’s going to happen to their data. Will they still be stored locally on their phones? Will they stay private? How secure will the site be?
Well, it looks like Facebook wants to make sure you understand the importance of privacy before letting you use the site. It’s got a whole bunch of new icons throughout the site for things like sharing, tagging and messaging that explain how important privacy is to you.
The company also created a special page explaining how and why it collects your data, and what that data is used for.
