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



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.

I've had it for a few days now. Already forgotten what the old layout was.

its to feed more traffic on to the website when everyone inevitably kicks off about the changes.

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.

Is it really that big a deal? All the same functions are there as normal.

It's not like the completely stupid alterations google has made to youtube. Having to use Google plus which is awful and no one uses. Also the stupid comment change layout and all the copyright algorithms that are flagging every video.

Now that was an awful re-design.

Also, I notice google maps has changed its layout and now it looks more ios-y.

but its good anyway

First, delete facebook.
Second, youtube did it a few times, but much more drastically. Still not used to it. Ok, design is one thing but complete layout? It is not about making things easier, I dont really understand what it is good for.

Contrary to what the 'off-the-grid' hipsters want you to think, it's possible to use Facebook and not give a shit about the layout.
But we little know until tried how much of the uncontrollable there is in us, urging across glaciers and torrents, and up dangerous heights, let the judgment forbid as it may.

I'd pay to see the look on these kids faces when they grow up, get a job and realize that every interface for every workplace ever is done by blind people inspired by 90's web design.

Because the designers need to keep a job, innovation occasionally happens and they need to test whether new ideas work.

Their new ideas don't work, been trying to look in a few groups I'm in and everything is slow and sluggish. The coders clearly have not tested it properly.
