Facebook Delays Profile RedesignBy: Doug Caverly - April 14, 2008
Anyone sitting on the edge of his seat in anticipation of Facebook’s redesigned profiles should probably lean back a bit; their release has been delayed until "later this spring," according to the company.
That could mean mid-June, if Facebook really wants to push the approaching-summer envelope. Users aren’t likely to get too upset, though – the average user likely doesn’t know an update is on the way. And developers may even be thankful; it seems much of the delay is due to the implementation of their requests.
"Recently we’ve reached out to the developer community by holding two roundtable events and conducting a survey of the Facebook Developer website," wrote Pete Bratach on the Facebook Developers blog. "We’ve also been taking into consideration the feedback we’ve received at the email@example.com address. Since then, we’ve been reviewing your comments and incorporating your feedback constructively wherever appropriate."
Bratach also stated, "[R]est assured, we will give you a period of time so you can update your applications before the profile is released to our users."
A hat tip goes to Neil Vidyarthi. We’ll let you guys decide if Facebook deserves a nod, as well.
