“This Site Is Closed For Renovation” — FaceBook Gets A New FaceLift
Face book, with over a 100 million users, is one of the best social networking site I’ve personally been a member of. Facebook recently got new facelift. Over 30 million users have already tried the new facebook and have started using it.
There are a lot of users who still are not comfortable shifting to the new UI (User Interface). This is normally the case with people. Even if the NEW is for the better, we hate the learning curve. But once we are foced to take it up, left with no choice, we convince ourselves, take up the challenge, use it and also get adjusted very quick. That’s the beauty of the human brain.
According to Facebook team, the “back to the old Facebook” frame will be gone soon and users will be forced to accept the new look without an option.
This facebook group which has more than over 800,000 users have been consistantly pelting facebook for the recent changes, but facebook has been taking the negative critisim in a positive way. They are looking for most valid complaints/suggestions if not all, by users and are building a stronger newer system. Now that’s smart business ..
“We appreciate all of the feedback we have received since we started working on the new design of Facebook. We encourage our users to continue sending us suggestions that will help us make the site even better.”
This is what Mark Slee of facebook had to say,
Filter Feeds – Check out the most recent and relevant actions from friends on Top Stories or see them as they happen with Live Feed.
Customize Tabs – Access to photos, info, and applications with new tabs on the profile page. Create custom tabs for the applications you access most frequently (such as a “Music” tab for iLike).
Navigate Faster – Quickly jump to profile, apps, inbox, search, home, and friend updates, through the navigation bar at the top of each page.
Participate in Stories – Easily view the top stories generated by friends, comment inline on status updates, and filter which stories you’d like to see more of – whether it’s more photos, fewer status updates, or more about a particular person.
Publish Content – Post comments, links, photos, music, and videos directly to the Mini Feed or friends’ walls with the publisher box.
Humans are reluctant to change, I’m one of them. But when change is ineveitable we all learn to live with it and adjust our life according to the conditions outside. At this point, when I’m almost done with todays updates, I’m open to test some of the new facebook tips and learn from my experience.
