Facebook Updates: A New Face for Facebook? Ruben Quinones Senior Vice President, Sales Published: February 9, 2010 1 min read Categories: Social The activity levels at facebook are feverish. Facebook has been trying to experiment with a lot of hope page designs and has finally announced on the Facebook blog that it has taken to this particular set-up which is rather intuitive and simple to use. Use of the Top Menu and left bars The earlier Facebook design was a continuous stream of updates from friends, groups and the flooding of your personal space with random notes. The new set-up allows you to view your updates as a drop down menu and on the left bars. This new Facebook update should make it easier for you to find the information you need faster than ever before. The new notifications, friend requests, “join a group”requests, etc., will all appear with numbered red bubbles on the top left hand corner as shown in the snapshot below. One click on these bubbles and a drop-down will show all your recent updates one below the other. Pretty neat. Similarly, the left panel will have an easier navigation to enable you to find photos, uploads, videos, content, games and applications, etc. The left menu will also have a better view now for friend feeds, chat panel and other applications that you are to find useful. Updates are like chocolates — as long as they are good, pleasing and yummy, we will never grow tired of them, do we? I really liked the new updates but I am a hoping for more to be done on the “business”part of facebook. It concerns me to see that all that traffic does barely anything but watch photos, update status messages, respond to other messages, poke or wish “happy birthday”. Enterprising Indeed. Have you tried the new facebook yet? Did you like it?
