Facebook has been doing some quick changes in it’s important features. The social network has recently introduced a new option for the users that allows them to hide the ‘ticker‘ – a feature that runs real-time activities of  Facebook friends.

After the amendments in ticker feature, Facebook has now pushed a new layout for viewing images on its platform – which looks very much similar to the layout of photo viewer in Google+. Many users have already received the new updated photo viewer layout on their Facebook profiles, however there is no official word on whether Facebook is going to permanently use this layout on all users’ profiles or just few.

For the new changes in layout, Facebook has moved the area of ‘comments and likes’  from bottom to the top right hand side of the photo viewer – exactly like in Google+, while the options of tagging and viewing previous and next photos appears when a user hovers the mouse pointer over selected image.


See below how an image appears on the new photo viewer of Facebook:

Now see how the same image looks in photo viewer of Google+:
