Mine just changed today, I don't like it, it seems too busy...like Tiger Direct's home page XD There's just too much stuff, not to mention the rounded the corners on every single photo on the menu? Not necessary and very annoying. And yeah, the wall posts/status and comments on them are hard to differentiate.
It was clearly designed by a 5-year-old -- no, I take that back...my daughter could design a better front end than they did. They took a LOT of functionality, customization, and filtering capability out of the home page (no more Live Feed, no more filtering capabilities in the News Feed with the exception of either an ALL or NOTHING setting for individual friends). They increased the font size as if we were either children or geriatrics, and cluttered the page up so much it's difficult to find anything. They added an advertisement box at the top where it's distracting, not helpful, and they added a "Highights" feature which isn't helpful to anyone. They've removed or made difficult to find events (birthdays, etc.), and the Feed doesn't auto-refresh anymore (Live Feed used to auto-refresh, so you didn't have to reload the page every time). Overall, it's a bunch of crap, and anyone who says differently doesn't know anything about GUIs.
facebook for whatever reason feels that they need to try and fix things that aren't broken. Just as I finally start to settle in to the new (old now) homepage they rolled out not too long ago (which I actually kind of liked) they force this monstrosity on everyone. I miss the old minimalist facebook, no apps, no hard to use and understand GUI's just simple communication and photo sharing. I don't know when facebook will realize that people use it because they like and want facebook, not twitter or myspace.
I've been irritated by it. It looks like they redesigned it to be more like Twitter or Myspace, both of which never really endeared themselves to me. Chriss's point is an excellent one. It's now just a pain to figure out everything that happened during previous few days.
"I hate the new facebook page. If they don't change it back. I will tell my friends and we will leave together. Facebook is lame. Or at least give us the option to change it."
