I am the new Facebook.

Kelly Sutton over at Hackcollege wrote an interesting article about the new changes that Facebook have planned. What’s even better is you could check it out yourself and do a little test run.


I personally think that facebook should stick with what they have now. The new changes almost makes things very cluttered. For profile pages, wall post and the mini feed have decided form into one super mega beast of information… and that super mega beast is way too crowded.

One thing that did tickle my “oh that’s cool” button was the tabs on top of the profile page. It makes it a lot nice instead of having the stuff on the side or all up in your profile page.

To get the full effect of the changes, click on your name on the top left or check out someone else profile page. Also, keep in mind that after visiting the above url your default will be the new layout. To change back to it there’s a link that says “back to old layout” in the upper right hand corner.

If you guys notice anything else interesting or just want to leave how you feel about it. Leave a comment!

    I really like the new layout. All those annoying applications that people add are now shunted to the “Boxes” tab. Plus, you can manage your own applications a lot easier now – they totally redid the applications manager.

    The wall filtering system takes a few moments to get used to, and I wish I could set it to default to posts by others rather than the current mishmash of mini feed items and wall posts. But I think overall it’s a big step forward.
