It’s as if people insist on jumping on “I hate the new facebook” bandwagon, but when i ask the simple question “Why do you hate it?” they give me a half baked answer of “I just don’t like the new layout”.Â Doesn’t sound like a plausible answer to me. Why? is it cool or hip to not like the new facebook?
Initially, for me it was a love/hate thing; i found the site hard to navigate, INITIALLY, but i was drooling at the fact that applications no longer plagued people’s main profile page.Â Instead it was now placed in a separate “tab” which for me was grand. Facebook was feeling a bit “myspace-ish” to me because of that so i welcomed that well needed change.
Things got even more sour when the facebook team decided to stop everyone from switching over to the old layout; but i think it was a good move, they’ll got accustomed to it eventually.
Now here’s the lowdown of advantages for me in the new facebook:
- People cannot PLAGUE there profiles with useless apps making there page take forever to load
- There’s now something called “Live feed“; explained in link
- You can now create specific filters with friends in them to streamline who you are most interested in.There are more, i’m just unable to pull them out of my head now
