The new layout that they forced me to use is pretty lame, so I'm not using it until they change it back. Hopefully enough other people deactivate or quit using it. Let me know in this thread when they let me change it back to the old style.

My frienquaintance started a group called "Quit bitching every time facebook changes." You should look into it. Remember the kerfuffle two years ago when they came out with their news feed?

I didn't complain back then because I liked the news feed. I am complaining now because the new style is really bad. That might be hard to wrap your head around though.

CHANGE! SCARY!


This is also the same reason Sunny and I mutually decided not to alter the INTL interface too much when we began designing INTL5: people bitch about the stupidest, most inconsequential shit and have zero ability to adapt to changes without complaining like a five year old.

Frankly, I like the new Facebook.

See, when sunny was talking to me about changes in INTL5 she kept saying that, but seriously, fuck 'em if they can't learn a new interface.

Well, the goal was to maintain the original interface as the default to reduce the number of people bitching. I remember when I went from INTL2 to INTL3, the number of complaints was discouraging and a bit frustrating. I felt that this time around, it wasn't worth it.

However, with Facebook, I imagine the way the site is designed, maintaining two completely separate interfaces, with as much AJAX as they have, would completely overload their programmers to the point of almost running two completely separate sites simultaneously. Seriously, just look at their source code sometime and download their Javascript files. For the old Facebook, there was one file that had at least 500kb worth of Javascript code and that was just one file. Imagine trying to maintain and develop for two distinctly different AJAX-intense interfaces, it would quickly become a liability.

It's exactly the same. Some things moved over a bit, and there are a few more tabs, but I don't see why everyone is so upset.

Why did they change the interface if there were no problems with the old version?

My understand is that the old core code was outdated and didn't allow for projected expansion and memberbase growth.

As for why they created an entirely new design and only allow users to use the new interface, probably has something to do with what I said above, maintaining two distinct AJAX interfaces would be a pain in the ass for their programmers. The new interface is probably more adaptive or something, who knows.

what you should do is open you're own alternative to facebook that will be far superior because you NEVER change anything about the UI, and we know that that's what's important about a website.

I'm a little annoyed by it too, especially since the "Go back to old Facebook" button doesn't do anything.

Disliking a new interface because it's not as good as the old one is impossible, so it must be because I am scared to death of change. On the internet.

People bitched about the new last.fm too, but I think it's pretty sweet once you get used to it.

It's impossible for something to be new and not as good as before. We are on an inevitable march forward progressing to our electronic Utopia, just like the Enlightenment Philosophers before us! Such small minds as those who favor the old Facebook format over the new would rather us live in straw huts, I do imagine.

I don't like the new look either. Now all of my friends will ignore the "personality" stuff on my page like Philosophers and bumper stickers.
