Why Facebook shifted their notification bar?

By Sukesh Kumar(facebook)(twitter)

How many of you have noticed a shift in their notification bar from left-to-right? 

Yes, Facebook has shifted the position of their notification bar and according to what we have heard, the reason behind this move is actually quiet logical.
According to a report by Techcrunch , Facebook wants user to focus more on the right-hand side of the site where we get to see birthdays, events  and the very important advertisements . As far as we think, Facebook want users to focus on the ads as users completely neglect the right-hand side of their profile, being busy in checking out the posts and notification on the left.

As a regular facebook user, I am always used to guide my cursor to the left for checking out my notifications and now i feel it really irritating when I have to re-direct to right. It would have been better if they would have released it as a user-deciding option.
Many of my mates were actually annoyed with this change and one of them even updated his status saying :

" Notifications on RIGHT!!! Oh god!! Dead End!! :@"

Facebook has confirmed that this is indeed a test and I am one of them experiencing the change.
Are you getting this change on your profile? 
Let us know in the comments.
