Facebook gets a facelift

In an entry on the Facebook blog, Carolyn Abram has announced the launch an updated version of the popular social networking site. The changes were grouped in three main categories:

  • A navigation and profile simplification – The menu options once on the left hand side have now been reorganized into "Core Aspects" on the top menu, "Applications" on the left menu, "Settings" on the top right and everything else at the footer of the page. Profile-related tasks are now available from a drop-down menu at the top of every user's profile page.
  • The introduction of "Inbox" – The former "My Messages" and "My Shares" pages have been merged to allow sending a single or a group of friends a message with or without a shared link, and easily track the ensuing conversation in one "thread" in your Inbox.
  • Network Pages – To make networks more relevant to their real-world counterparts, pages for network members, events, trends, and demographic information are now available. Anything visible on a Network page is something that is already accessible to members of that network. "Publicize" options allow groups and events easily distinguish what will and will not appear on the Network page. In addition, each page now has a full version for members of the network and a limited public version.
