The New Facebook....

Fri Sep 05, 2008 8:02 pm

For those of you who use Facebook, how do you like the new look? Personally, I hate the new look. It is harder to navigate through the whole site and it clutters everything, even with the new tabs on the top. It is hard to find anything. I prefer the old look better.

Thoughts?

There is a new Facebook group out on it that is against the new look. I have joined that group. It now has 169,579 members and is growing rapidly everyday.

I hate it. I saw it before and changed it back. Though I was on early this morning and it was still the old one. Haven't been on yet, and I'm not sure how I will react when I try to navigate through.

Seriously, why do owners think that they need to change things that work?  mad

Ditto.

Much more streamlined, as noted above. I don't care so much about attacking vampires, and li'l green patches. I'd rather see the important info in one place at the top.

I don't like it at all... I don't like how everything is integrated now and your wall and your newsfeed are basically the same. But then again, I hated the previous new layout (the current one) but after using it for a while it grew on me.

But I really don't see why they have to do a major makeover. The current one is fine.

That is precisely why I hate the new look. Your wall incorporated with the news feed makes it very, very difficult to read and look for new wall posts. It clutters everything.

I thought the current one was fine too, but evidently Facebook doesn't share my opinion. The new one looks better, in my opinion, but isn't as functional. The wall and minifeed mix definitely isn't my favorite. I don't like how they separate the info and application segments into pages either.

Thats right. I'm only fifteen and moved when I was 10. I moved from Sydney to Brussels to Hamburg to London and who knows where next. I still go to school so I guess I'm a student but not at university. It's made it a hell of a lot easier to keep up with all the friends I've left especially since I never wanted to leave them in the first place even if it is great fun exploring new places every few years.

As for the new Facebook, I think it is confusing and will possibly act as a bit of a deterrent for some new users as it is complicated at first glance. I will continue using the old version until it goes and hope that these groups make a difference.

Cheers.

The fact is, with the new tabs on the top of the profiles, it isn't anywhere near faster than the old FB look. It isn't even close to the same speed as the old FB look for that matter...

The one thing I absolutely HATE about it is that the news feed and the wall posts are incorporated into the same area, thus making it very difficult to read. I prefer the news feeds and the wall posts separately. The FB management did a piss-poor job with this.

I joined in something like November or December 2004 when I was a college student. Facebook has gotten so pointless I rarely go there anymore. It used to be a real simple way to contact other people from school. Now, it's basically become another Myspace, where every dickhead, pimple-encrusted middle schooler with an internet connection can get their free page of garbage. Yes, I am in the camp that believes that it should have stayed strictly for college students.

That said, if I was running Facebook, I certainly would've opened it up.
