…and Facebook keeps blowing our minds with innovation!

Facebook have rolled out a new feature which really looks promising right from the start. The new feature added by the social media giants is “Coloured Background”. This newly introduced feature will enable Facebook users who post text-only status updates to spice up their post by adding background colours to their posts, thereby making the text posts more visually appealing, attractive and catchy. The feature lets users select a color that appears behind their text status in place of the boring and cliche all white background.

The new colourful background on Facebook status updates is an attention-grabbing feature from Facebook. This will surely unleash a totally new and entirely different user experience on the social networking platform as it is now clear that Facebook text-only status updates without the all new and interesting colourful background will get the attention of very few or even no user at all.

This feature gives users the opportunity of selecting a colour of their choice that they would love to appear behind their text status before it is being published. I guess this update from Facebook will serve as a new dawn and something much of a breakthrough to users who have used and still using uploaded images to draw the attention of their followers and friends to their status update. It’s time to give that attention seeking technique a break I presume.
