Facebook Home Page Undergoes Redesign

PC Magazine reports that leading social media site Facebook has completed a site redesign intended to make it easier for users to immediately access their most important pieces of information and applications. The rollout is being done incrementally, meaning that not all users will immediately see changes to their Facebook layout, but those who do will see differences both subtle and significant.

Among the significant changes is a red bubble in the top left corner of the home page which opens drop-down menus featuring important notifications such as new messages, photos in which the person has been tagged or new posts on a person’s Wall.

In a post on the Facebook blog, engineer Jing Chen said that the intent of the redesign is that “the simplified design of the home page will make it easy for you to stay connected with the people, applications and activities that matter the most to you.”
