On Tuesday evening Facebook announced that users would begin seeing the new profile within 24 hours. They also gave warning to developers to be prepared. More than 24 hours have passed by and the new profile has still not launched. While Facebook initially suggested that the profile would launch sometime this week, the notification to developers the other night made it seem like a profile update was imminent.
Developers are still waiting to see how their applications are effected by the new opt-in design. Facebook is clearly busy with a number of projects that they hope to launch at next week’s f8 but the profile redesign is clearly one of the most important changes for Facebook developers in months. We are expecting the profile to go live today but as of now there is no word on when the change is finally happening.
Developers simply need to stand by and wait for Facebook to throw the switch!
