Recently Facebook have rolled out a new layout, at first glance I was pretty critical, however I am now coming round to what I believe is a simpler interface.
The new layout truncates quite a lot of the infrequently used menus such as “Account Settings”, “Privacy Settings” and the Logout button, these can all be found in the Account drop down menu.
The left hand panel is in my opinion the success story of this new layout, it not only allows you to narrow down what is seen in the news feed, but it allows quickly and easily access to applications, requests and Facebook’s online chat.
Finally the one other change that I like is the notification feature near the Facebook logo, these notifications ‘light-up’ when you have a new friend requests, a new message or a new notification.
