Facebook Adds Profile Favicons

You may have noticed a small change to your profile that took place this morning. Facebook has added application favicons within your profile so that it is easier to navigate those application heavy profiles. By clicking on one of the icons, the profile will automatically scroll down to the area that you are looking for. Facebook has also created icons for the default profile boxes such as wall, information and education and work. It’s a small change but I definitely think it’s a cool one.

Facebook is known for their attention to detail and this is definitely one of those features. The only problem is that there is no link that moves you back to the top of the profile page. This reminds me of blogs that had all those icons for RSS and social bookmarking sites at the bottom of each post. It would be interesting to see what a profile with hundreds of applications would look like. Do you think this new feature is useful?
