    I don't know why but Facebook, it seems, is trying to be like Twitter!

    It's now harder to look for certain information and I don't like the fact that the new wall posts my picture when I update my status. I liked it better when it didn't. It just confuses me what to look for.

    I also don't like the "recent activity". In the past, if you were to reply to a post on a differen't person's wall, it would show on top of the post that the original poster made. But it's no longer true in the new facebook. This feature really pisses me off for some reason.

    I thought that I would like it but it has just made me hate it.

    So what do you guys think?

    How about just hating facebook in general? All revisions, clones, and implementations?

    Does that count?

    I liked the last big update but this one is just a bit rubbish. Status updates and wall posts have seemingly merged together which I really don't like and its now giving me updates to people I previously said I didn't want as many updates from.

    What was wrong with the old layout? :confused: I'm really not keen on this Twitterish look.

    Exactly how I feel. I remember the old facebook. And then it got that change I think it was in October or something. At first I didn't like it but I got so used to it that I preferred it.

    But now this change is just ridiculous.

    I don't have a problem with the new layout, but I've gotten an "Authentication Error" all of the time when trying to post status updates or do anything like that. I'm more frustrated it broke the functionality (for me.)

    i have hated this facebook change more than the last one. it's like they are TRYING to make it terrible.

    i use facebook instead of myspace as it WAS so much easier to manage and locate people with..

    what's worse... is they don't give you an option

    Maybe you should start a Facebook group against it or something? I'm sure that'll get them to change it back...

    While I do think the new look is certainly more modern looking I will agree that it looks more like twitter, and I already have all my tweets going to Facebook so I never update my Facebook status directly. I really don't mind. I only use Facebook to talk to certain people.

    I preferred the older version, but it doesn't really bother me, still does the job. Is there anyway of reverting it back to the old style?

    I prefer the home screen bit, but the profiles are terrible. For example you have to write something in collation to your name - what's the point in that? I think it'll be changed back, though. At least, i'm hoping. :cool:

    p.s beat me to it.

    When everyone was complaining about that last big update, I actually liked it a lot better than the original, but I am starting to dislike the newest version. I agree that they've made it much harder to see certain things and it makes it much harder to differentiate between wall posts and status updates than before. I'll have to see if I get used to it, but for now I don't like it.

    Same. The last update was an improvement, just a vast update that a lot of people didn't like. This new one isn't an improvement which is why I'm hoping they take note and fix it up.

    What's that old saying? If it ain't broke, don't fix it.

    You're just now hating the facebook layout? It started going to hell the moment they let in 3rd party applications. Ever since then, they've been scrambling with drastic redesigns.

    They are definitely trying to figure out how to handle the popularity of Twitter. Internet social life is fickle.

    way to cluttered

    new facebook just seems way to cluttered now. organization and structure was much better before. status update is really weak. its so bad i haven't even been getting on lately.

    There is a group on Facebook that seems to get you the old layout back. But it didn't work for me.
