Every time Facebook changes its layout, and this has occurred a number of times already since the social networking site opened itself to the world, users have been turned into critics for or against the changes. The different Facebook Layouts have elicited either approving or disapproving comments from different users themselves.
For example, in September 2008 when the New Facebook featured a completely redesigned layout, a great number of users opposed it, even forming themselves into several groups to voice out their views. They said the new layout was all messed up. But there were those who liked the change because they said the new layout was really cleaner and less cluttered. Some users who initially opposed the change eventually came to like the new feel after getting used to it. Plenty of users debated on the issue of freedom of choice but all had to adopt the new Facebook layout.
In 2011 another full redesign of the Facebook Pages took place, and another exchange of comments spewed forth from users across the world. They debated on which features were annoying or beneficial and whether there was really a need for the many changes. They asked whether the old was more user-friendly than the new and which of the two was more pleasant in general. But after all was said and done the changes stayed and all users had to adjust.Â
Itâ€™s probably all just like in any activity in which a change has to be instituted; there would always be critics. And so the Facebook story as regards its layout will surely continue in the years to come for change is inevitable. We can only imagine what the critics of the new Facebook layout in the future say. Will there be two camps as usual or will there be just one voice? Do you like the current layout? What would you suggest they change?
