Why does Facebook always uglify its self

I'm not a big user of FB and really only use it to organise stuff with Uni friends and housemates but I went on this morning and it has had the most ugly redesign ever with a change of font, an increase in font size, graphics and icons changing, elements flipping from left to right for no real reason and them introducing extra colours into a blue-white layout so now it is mainly grey. Not to mention the amount of unused space on my browser

show


Why do Facebook always do this? Do they employ a bunch of colour blind people with no eye or anything? Or is it just ugly for me?

I haven't been hit with that update yet, but there are a lot of sites with that sort of weird design - I'm wondering if they're optimised for a different size monitor or something?

They probably do it to piss people off. The cool thing about it is that they can mess with you as much as they want while knowing that you'll continue to use Facebook no matter what they do to the layout.

I'm on a 1300x720 size monitor and I don't run my Chrome in full screen mode so it's going to look even worse for people who keep their Browsers maximised (which is most people)

With the prevalence of new social networks like Instagram, Twitter, LinkedIn, Google+ etc. they should really be enhancing their product so people don't leave.

doesn't look that bad or drastic compared to some other fb/twitter/youtube changes i've seen in the past and got over quickly.

i think it has a lot to do with trying to make the mobile apps and the real site closer and closer to being identical. if it pisses you off, nothing but stopping using it will do anything.

Yeah, okay.

Also Google+ is the only one of those that really does more or less the same thing as Facebook, and Facebook owns Instagram anyway.

twitter's not new whatsoever, and the rest are pretty not new either, vine would've been a better choice.

and even still, instagram and twitter are big proponents of this "less is more" design that you're pissy fb is moving towards. can't speak for linkedin, but i think it's a stupid one to put with the rest as it's for a completely different purpose. if you're really bummed out about this, then move to google+. sure your friends probably aren't posting on it, but whatever change you want has to start somehow. what you're doing now is pissing in the wind.

you're like the guy in every action movie that threatens someone with a gun but it too afraid to actually shoot them when it gets down to things. facebook doesn't give a shit about you saying you're gonna leave because both parties know in their heart of hearts that you're gonna still use facebook just as much as you did yesterday

Every time you're gonna moan about the newest layout and every time you'll do nothing about it because let's face it, you're Facebook's bitch and there's currently nothing out there that can change that.

Now take it like the bitch that you really are.

They do it because they know that after 2 days people stop caring since it's all the same stupid shit, just presented slightly differently.
