In a blog postyesterday, the company wrote that the new features for Facebook Mobile will "add a new dimension to your profile".

Facebook also announced a range of 'customization options' for your profile picture, following the success of the 'Celebrate Pride' filter, used by 26 million people earlier this year.

The options include #tbt (throwback thursday), holiday and birthday filters. Users will also be choose to change their profile picture to change back to the previous after a set amount of time, allowing profiles to keep up with trends and campaigns.

Improved profile controls and a new 'customizable space' at the top of your mobile profile are included in the new features announced.

The updates will be available to UK and California users first before they roll out to the rest of the world.
