Facebook Launches New Layout

About 20 days ago, I wrote a post about the Facebook New Design Sneak Preview and provided pictures of what the new layout will look like. That post is no longer needed considering that Facebook launched the new layout this morning.

  1. A navigation and profile simplification‚??Ever feel like you couldn’t find what you were looking for on that long left menu? We’ve redistributed all these menu options into “Core Aspects” on the top menu, “Applications” on the left menu, Settings on the top right, and everything else at the footer of the page. As for the profile, we’ve added drop-down menus to the top of every user’s profile page, making it easier to get to the information you want to see. You can read more about the navigation changes here.
  2. The introduction of “Inbox”‚??The former “My Messages” and “My Shares” pages have been redesigned to make the communication between you and your friends easier. Now you can send a group of your friends a message with or without a shared link, and easily track the ensuing conversation in one “thread” in your Inbox.
  3. Network Pages‚??To make networks more relevant to their real-world counterparts, we’ve built out pages where network members, events, trends, and demographic info are displayed. Anything visible on a Network page is something that is already accessible to members of that network, and we’ve added additional “Publicize” options to groups and events that make it easy to distinguish what will and will not appear on your Network page. In addition, each page has a full version for members of the networks, and a public version‚??with certain kinds of information blocked‚??for people outside that network.

It will be interesting to see how people react to the new changes that facebook has made. The last time they made a change, many people complained, were nervous about the fact that it felt very stalker like and many even deleted their accounts because they didn’t like it. I hope this time facebook gets a bigger and better response.
