Facebook Adding App Bookmark Reordering to the Home Page Soon

Since the new Facebook home page launched a few weeks ago – making a few application bookmarks more prominent on the home page – one of the usability issues with the new design is that it’s been difficult for users to reorder bookmarks on their home page. Instead of allowing reordering, Facebook has only allowed bookmark deleting directly from the home page, making it harder for developers to tell users how to make their bookmark more prominent.

Now, Facebook says on its Developer Wiki that it is “actively building” bookmark reordering for the home page with an estimated launch date of “March.” We’ll let you know when Facebook rolls it out, as many developers will likely want to encourage users to move their app bookmarks up, directly under the Applications and Games dashboard links on the home page.
