    You all know Facebook, right? (It's like myspace kinda). Check out www.facebook.com.

    They recently changed the look, and something seems very very fishy. Look for yourself.

    Yeah, I remember logging in, seeing the new layout and thinking that it was a bit too Apple like.

    Facebook has been using an OS X style for some time now. I like it, as it's much easier to use than MySpace, and less public.

    it's not less public in the sense that anyone can get a facebook account but it does have less users.

    I'd say its not the search bar, because it's different between browsers as already mentioned.

    1) It's more of the iPhoto look with the two pictures... kind of resembles the iPhoto library icon. (Photos)
    2) The Calendar icon looks a lot like iCal's. (Events)
    3) The icon of two people in a way, maybe resembles Address Book's icons? If you go into it and look at yourself in it (assuming you have yourself in your list), it looks like two of these 'silhouettes' together.' -- I was just looking and in System Prefs it's pretty close to the Accounts icon, with a slight colour change. (Groups)
    Nothing to be overly excited about though...

    Nobody cares. It's just something I happened to notice! I guess you can call me rather observant :eek:

    Let's just hope OS X doesn't return the favor and make Stalker Feeds one of the top secret features.

    Somewhat still related:

    When facebook started the "gifts," all of the little gift Icons were designed by Susan Kare, the designer of the original Mac OS icons.
