Computer users are not immune to constant changes in the design of web sites including social networking sites such as Facebook. In fact every time a change occurred in the Facebook Layout over the past few years it was readily noticed by the millions of users who need to keep abreast of developments.
In September 2008 all Facebook users literally faced a redesigned layout when they signed in to their individual accounts. It was called the New Facebook, but users were already introduced to it earlier so that they could opt for it and forego the original design. The old layout was completely redesigned to a less cluttered look. All profiles were made to fit the same basic layout and divided into tabs. The new bottom bar featured an applications menu. All these and a few more required the users to adapt immediately for them to enjoy the full use of the features.
Another full redesign of the Facebook took place in early 2011 with a new navigation menu on the left hand side, among other noticeable changes. This new design was actually first seen in December 2010 when it was accidentally launched by Facebook. Users said goodbye to the previous tabbing system as they began experiencing a new navigation menu. Page admins were now able to comment on other Pages and add info at the top of their Pages. These and other new features gave users a new field for creative uses of the Facebook Pages.
There is all probability that Facebook will radically change again any time soon as it has through the years. There have even been times when small changes were introduced, which could very well lead to a larger overall new makeup. Will the new Facebook Layout be to everyoneâ€™s content or will there be the usual critics who prefer no changes?
