Facebook Facelift 2010 – potential new layout

Google might not be the only internet giant making layout changes in 2010 – Facebook seems like it might be getting yet another layout change in 2010. When they tried to change it last year, users were so against the changes that they had to fight to try and persuade people it was a change for the better.

It’s unlikely we’ll see the same kind of resistance from Facebook users this time as the changes seem only very minor, yet still annoying if you’re a firm believer of the saying, “if it ain’t broke, don’t fix it”. However, the changes we’ve seen were pretty good, from a technical point of view at least, because it’s now faster to do some things such as view your message inbox, notifications and requests (the icons of which now sit sandwiched between the Facebook logo and the now rather elongated search bar), which has also been repositioned to the centre.

The changes are in testing and only visible at this moment on certain accounts, which suggests the update may not even happen but it’s likely that we’ll at least hear more about this soon.

Share your thoughts of the first new 2010 Facebook layout – a good or bad start to the new year?

    It’s amazing how many people express their hatred when Facebook makes a layout change, and it’s hilarious to see the number of people desperate to find ways to change it back to how it was.

    Why is it hilarious? Because the same people complained about the previous layout change saying that they hate it.

    The proof is right there – people don’t like change, but once you get used to it you’re fine.

    Give yourself a chance to get used to it – things have to change to improve… if Facebook didn’t change things they wouldn’t exist today.

    I for one never really had a problem with them changing it in the past. But i do not like the new layout now. Its not so much the layout, but facebook it about staying connected with people. When you cant even see all their post, or you dont get then until hours later, then what is the point? It seems silly that a social networking site would make social networking all but imposable to achieve.
