Ditching The Doublewide? Facebook Testing Single Column Timeline Layout

One of the staples in Facebook’s Timeline display has been the two column view of a user or page’s profile. Today InsideFacebook spotted a single column layout of Timeline in the wild.

The example has updates stay on the left side while open graph modules like Instagram, Friends, Recent Activity were located in the right hand side.

We reached out to Facebook who confirmed the test stating that it was a test made available to a small percentage of folks.
