Facebook Gets a Facelift
Posted on Tuesday, September 5th, 2006 at 5:01 pm.

As stated on the Facebook Blog, Facebook gets a ‘facelift’. The new interface is pretty awesome, with some nice Javascript effects going on, new homepage that acts like a dashboard, and all of that fun stuff.

Along with versions come bugs.

The current Facebook version has a bunch of bugs - I went to add a post on Good Grammar is Hot and it fowarded me to my home page. Then I clicked on my Group Invitations, and it went to my home page - and it had nothing in the space that I was supposed to have my and my friends’ updates (bla bla bla wrote on your wall….)

The profile page isn’t exactly to my fullest happiness. The different sizes of the columns disrupts my former zen for the profile page - the half-and-half …ness. Though I believe I will get used to it and appreciate the reorganizing of the stuff (for example, Groups is now on the sidebar, away from the social, dynamic part of your profile.)

If Facebook weeded out the bugs, that would be great. Still miniamlistic. Congratulations, Facebook.

These features are not only different from anything we’ve had on Facebook before, but they’re quite unlike anything you can find on the web. We hope these changes help you stay more up to date on your friends’ lives.
