FACEBOOK OVERHAULS ‘LIFE EVENTS’ FEATURE
Big Milestones Deserves Big Announcements, that is why Facebook has reconstructed its ‘Life Events’ feature.
WHAT ARE LIFE EVENTS?
Life events can be referred to as all the quintessential moments that can transform an individual’s usual activities, such as marriage, the birth of a child, new job etc.
WHY IT MATTERS?
Life Events are a way for people to get engaged with one another. It’s a way for users to share and celebrate their quintessential milestones with friends and family. So, it’s important to give these special moments a special treatment. That’s why Facebook is providing a better and nicer way to memorialize people’s biggest life events and help your friends to celebrate those special happenings with you.
David Harris, a Facebook product manager, said, “The main aim behind redesigning this feature is to give these sorts of posts a nicer way to stand out from other posts. Just as they are in real life, life events on Facebook are distinguished from other everyday moments.”
WHAT ARE THE CHANGES?
Earlier when we wanted to share a big life events like, a new job or engagement, or birth of a child or whatever the major events deem noteworthy to us, we used to choose an icon for it to exemplify its significance. However, now we can add photos and videos too. The revamped feature will also allow us to upload animated photos or videos from the people or page we’ve tagged. We can also pick images from Facebook’s own art collection. What else? Life Events will now have a dedicated section in user’s profile.
The redesign will be launched globally in the coming days on iOS, Android and Desktop.
Meanwhile, here’ a look at some of the ways people use ‘Life Events’.
