The social networking site just acquired the fb.com from the Farm Bureau for $8.5 million. In addition to this, Facebook users will have the new profile design in the coming days -- take it or leave it.

As reported by Reuters, Facebook paid $8.5 million for the fb.com domain from the American Farm Bureau Federation. It will be remembered last year that Facebook launched its remodeled messaging service. In the process, the social networking site offered the facebook.com email address to its users. The purchased fb.com will be used by Facebook for employee email addresses. As for the Farm Bureau, they have fb.org as their new home on the net.

In addition with Facebook’s alternate domain, the network introduced the new profile layout to its users a month ago. During that time, Facebook users can opt-in to change their profile with the new design. But it seems that the update will be pushed to all users in the coming days, whether they like it or not.

Facebook Uploads New Profile Page Design

The top social network site unveiled its new photo-dominated profile pages. Tabs are moved to side and more images are splattered on the pages. How will the people perceive this change?

For the new Facebook profile, the company gave emphasis on photos. It starts on the summary of photos on the top of a profile page. The old tabbed interface of things like walls, infos and photos were transfered on the left rail below the primary photo.

Instead of the basic facts about the user hidden in the ‘Info’ tab, the new profile design features a short introduction at the top of the profile page. The introduction includes job, relationship status, birthday, hometown and many more. Since photos come after the basic information, users should be more vigilant of photos which they are tagged.

Featured Friends section on the left rail is also given the spotlight on the new design. User can highlight friends and family who are important. Plus the Friendship Pages which debuted last October is now directly integrated on the profile page.

The new Facebook design now display favorites by means of photos instead of text links. In addition, albums are equipped with infinite scroll for easy navigation through hundreds of photos.

Watch an intro video of the new Facebook profile page after the skip.
