But that's not all.
Zuckerberg also announced a revamped edition of the Profile Page, available to Facebookers on Tuesday. But they couldn't wait to release their completely new design— they announced on the Facebook Blog that it's now available TODAY!
The aim of the new Profile Page is to put your life's story front and center, with you in control of what others see. Check out Zuckerberg's new Profile Page:
Below his name, you can immediately see his mini-biography:
"* Has worked at Facebook since 2004 * Lives in Palo Alto, California * Studied Computer Science at Harvard University * From Dobbs Ferry, New York * Born on May 14, 1984?
The navigation menu that used to be centered above your wall and information, in tabs, has moved to the space on the left column right below your profile picture. Plus, photos of the Facebook user are now given prominence, for a more aesthetically pleasing view.
And that's not all. There's a whole list of changes, for better or worse, on the new layout. Check out the promo video below, which shows you how the new Facebook profile makes it easier for you to tell your story and learn about your friends.
