Facebook revealed a new look today. If you haven’t seen this change yet, you will. Inside Facebook indicates 80 million users got the new home page layout February 4, and more will be seeing the redesign shortly.
The new Facebook layout includes a new home page design, and an applications and games dashboard. Below is a sneak peak.
My 3-minute reaction is that I like it. If over the course of the next 24-hours that opinion changes I will let you know! The main change is to the top and side navigation; specifically, it is easier to find the items you use most: messages, new requests, notifications, etc.
Another feature is they showcase who’s online now (left nav) in an attempt to increase the use of their chat feature. They’ve also made the reminders, like for birthdays, a little more prominent. I’ve only reviewed for a few minutes, but so far there is nothing glaring that I can’t find.
