  1. I actually really like this design. Though there is a catch 22 to it.

    People moan like hell when Facebook change anything. Therefore, if them employed this design, my ‘busy’ news feed would be filled up with people moan. I would then un-friend everyone moaning; my news feed would no longer be busy, thus not needing the new design. :p hehe

    On a more serious note, it looks very influenced by the Windows Metro crossed with Google’s new facelift. Two very popular well thought out user interfaces. I have wondered why Facebook’s design is so dull, and old.

  2. Well done indeed!!
    very balanced! even though we are so addicted to the old layout it really is a refreshment! and it’s not easy! hell facebook couldn’t do it! but you did it so good mate! Bravo!

  3. I really like this design for Facebook. They need to have a more modernized look. I would visit my Facebook page more often if it was designed like this. If I were on the FB team I would definitely consider updating the look of the Facebook social network site.

  4. I really like the design!
    it is much more visually pleasing the all of the other Facebook designs already used…Also, at first it felt a bit cluttered and messy, but after going through all of the different elements and “events” of where do you click, and how the site functions I can see that it is in fact much more comfortable and well thought than the current Facebook design…

    All in all, a very well thought and well designed new look and user interface!

  5. This is really good!
    I always tell people that I don’t live on Facebook, something like this might make me move more fully into my piece of Facebook real estate.
