The New Facebook – Hot Or Not?

Facebook has recently revamped the layout of its user profiles, introducing a ‘tabbed’ interface to navigate through your own or your friends profiles:

facebook

The advantage of a tabbed interface is that you’ll gain more screen real estate and your content should be categorized more efficiently.

Although having used the original single page layout, I prefer the old format:

facebook

Which gave a friendly, personal feel, compared to the more ‘corporate’ feel of new interface.

At the moment, Facebook has an option for users to switch to the older format, which is a better fit for its traditional college/university demographic.

If the new ‘corporate’ look is intended to give Facebook a leg up in competing with more B2B-focused networks like LinkedIn, it needs to still remain in touch with it’s core audience and provide the option of the old one-page format.

Would it have been better to create a parallel “Facebook Business” network and launch the new profile there?

I’m not sure, but I don’t appreciate how the new format has cut up my old profile with the applications laid out the way I want them.

For the moment, the new facebook is not hot in my books.

    So far Im still trying to get used to it. But I have to agree at this time Im not thrilled with the revamping. Im going to see if staying with it for a bit makes a difference and if I dont like it Im switching back too. Even though I still have the content I want in each tab, I liked that I could put it where I wanted the other way. We’ll just have to see I guess. Great post Im curious to see what others have to say as well!

    Hi Andrew,

    I prefer the old layout just like you. The reason is because I like the all-in-one page, which can consolidate all my interaction with a particular person within just one page.

    Although it looks cleaner, the new layout is way too geeky though. :mrgreen:

    The old layout felt more friendly… and more simple… this new one seems to make everything more complex…

    I totally agree the old facebook was much neater, easier to use and felt more like ‘your page’ rather than one they created for you. It just looks wierd now my personal info and apps are on other tabs – why would you click on them as a viewer? Also, combining the mini feed and wall into one feed dilutes the ‘wall’ metaphor and makes it less effective imho.

    An intriguing discussion is worth comment. I think that you ought to publish more about this topic,
    it might not be a taboo matter but usually folks
    don’t talk about these issues. To the next! Cheers!!

    I’ve been browsing online more than 3 hours as of late, but I by no means found any interesting article like yours. It is beautiful price enough for me. In my opinion, if all site owners and bloggers made excellent content as you did, the net shall be a lot more useful than ever before.
