    Or FB could put an option for a user to choose a layout, basic or advance. :)

    If you had UK English set as the default language, then you had the older style layout (i.e. with the notifications etc, on the left, rather than the right). So, this one (which I & several of my friends have) looks different!
    Actually, flicking through random languages, they all seem to have it; so, perhaps where before it was set to this layout based on your default language (I know that when I switched to US English to check something else, it was the notifications on the right layout, and switching back to UK English it reverted to notifications on the left).
    So, now I guess it’s either everyone, or it’s set on a per-user basis, rather than a language basis.

    Urgh. It’s horrible. Everything’s too close together now. I really enjoyed Facebook’s UI, it was well designed, had plenty of whitespace and was very easy to read. This is just a headache.

    Mine neither. I had no idea what they were talking about.

    What were these geniuses thinking, this layout is probably the worst layout Facebook has come up with so far.

    The answer is simple, give the user the option to customize their layout, so they can choose their font, font size, and make the ads, newsfeed, event box. etc., as big or small as they want it. That’s not such a hard thing to do, many websites do that. At very least, they can then make a basic layout they’d feel more comfortable with. That seems like the obvious answer, rather than coming out with a new layout every 8 months that nobody ends up liking.

    It’s still hard to believe someone in executive took a look at this new layout, and said, this looks good, let’s go with it. Whoever made that decision should be fired. The least you can do, is sample it with the users, and get their feedback, and if the feedback isn’t good, you pull the plug. Or give an option to return to the old layout, again, these are basic things you can do, to keep your users happy.

    Don’t force them into something they don’t want, and say, well get used to it. The fact that in this new layout, they literally doubled the size of the ads to the point where it’s almost as big as the newsfeed itself, just shows who Facebook caters to more nowadays. Problem is, you keep doing moves like this, people will just leave Facebook and you won’t have many people viewing these ads.

    Rule number 1 in business, always keep your customers happy, that’s something you should’ve learned in high school.

    This layout is ugly as all hell…

    If they could, they should let users CHOOSE between several themes, as if it was Gmail layout. this way people can choose the old format or new styles. kind of Skins (such as good old winamp).. they must be user friendly..

    Facebook and Google have “improved” many of their sites to oblivion. Now available to see are posts to a Page back to April 2. All before that are “Unavailable at this time.” Making the page darned near worthless.
