Facebook's experimental Android notification bar comes back with an upgrade

We all have heard of the permanent notification bar of Facebook which appeared for some Android users last year and popped as a result of no activity. Facebook has been known to test its upcoming features before release and this is how it managed to test the notification bar by making it visible for a few users. Facebook comes back with the features once again and this time it comes with an upgrade. The upgradation will allow your profile picture to be posted next to Facebook's familiar icons.

Similar to the way it appeared earlier on, this time around the notification bar stays in Android's notification tray regardless of whether you have a new message in your inbox or a friend request. Where this part of the feature remains similar, the major difference will be seen when you will find your picture staring back at you every time you will access this notification tray. Since we are aware of Facebook's habit to test their features before official releases, we should know that this bar is only available to a few Android users at the moment. If any one of you ends up getting the feature and you are tired of seeing your picture then all you have to do is click on the "i" icon to disable the bar via the Settings page.

About the Geek Mind

The “geek mind” is concerned with more than just the latest iPhone rumors, or which company will win the gaming console wars. I4U is concerned with more than just the latest photo shoot or other celebrity gossip.

The “geek mind” is concerned with life, in all its different forms and facets. The geek mind wants to know about societal and financial issues, both abroad and at home. If a Fortune 500 decides to raise their minimum wage, or any high priority news, the geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants to know the top teams in the National Football League, or who’s likely to win the NBA Finals this coming year. The geek mind wants to know who the hottest new models are, or whether the newest blockbuster movie is worth seeing. The geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants—needs—knowledge.
