This happens every time facebook make a change. Everyone just gets used to it again.

I quite like it to be honest
Yeah. I have all my friends in various lists (mainly named after the city I was living in when I met them) and went through each list and clicked "always hide" and "add to favourites" for all my lists. And just "always hide" to the ones Facebook has created automatically.

Now my favourites lists all my friends in their respective lists, and the "Lists" section in its entirity has vanished. Cool. So I click on, eg, "Basel" and now it shows wall updates from all my Basel friends.

I'm getting Facebook nostalgia. I think I have a problem.

Re: New Facebook

My fb seems to work!

But I wish I could turn off the ticker, too much info gives me insomnia.

Re: New Facebook

what i dont get.. is why dont make small changes.. here and there... useful or funny changes ... instead of changing the whole fffeing layout

if its working.. dont touch it or mess with it.. (life motto)

Re: New Facebook

Since this morning (unless it was there before and I didn't notice it?), Facebook has been encouraging me to "Meet local women" and "Solve my arthrosis problem".

I do NOT like it when social media software starts inferring that I am an ageing, single and probably lonely git.

Re: New Facebook

Apparently any filters you've set don't apply to the ticker in the corner (yet). So if for example you were gay and not "out", and posted on a LGBTQ group, expecting only people from that group to be able to see it... well your family may get a bit of a surprise. I don't know which groups this applies to but thought it worth mentioning until they get it fixed.

(By the way, yes they did run a test, I happened to be one of the unlucky ones involved, and it certainly appeared that everyone said they hated the new system. So that's probably why they went for it. )

Re: New Facebook

There are changes in every language I think. I am using an Estonian version and there are lots of changes. It is funny but the news of fb change was on tv today, in German. And even in Estonia it was in a newspaper! I could not believe my eyes. Is facebook really that important to cross the newslevel? Why did not anyone write about myspace or orkut or other social networks in the past? The guys behind fb must be millionaires now. I wish to have good ideas tooo

Hmm, hopefully will get used to new design but so far it is very confusing and the pics of others are so big and their statuses are "top" even if they are in unknown languages such as Finnish or French:. Why is google+ better? is it?

Re: New Facebook

They seem to have tweaked it again - maybe in response to user feedback? I am now seeing just one "top story" at the top of the page, immediately followed by all the most recent stuff in chronological order. Much better.

Re: New Facebook

I'm getting used to it...

The most annoying change is one they made a while ago; that the Enter key immediately posts your text, so when you want to insert a new line instead, you have to press Shift too!

You then get these things:

"want to type post" -> "press enter for new line" -> "post gets posted while not finished" -> "everybody that replied earlier gets E-mail" -> "post gets removed because not finished" -> "post get retyped, but now finished" -> "everybody again gets E-mail" -> "E-mailed ppl. hate you because you spammed them"

Re: New Facebook

The two most annoying things for me are:

1) How gigantic everyone's posted pics are in my newsfeed

2) The right-side ticker showing me likes and comments from my friends that they post on their own friends' pages (who are not my own friends).


Waste of space - like I care who my friends are friends with

"George likes Karen's post on Cynthia's wall" - who the heck are Karen & Cynthia??!!

Oh, and the extra movement of having to manually scroll up and down on the ticker is just wasting calories from my hard earned meal.

That's weird, I don't see that "ticker" at all. For which I am most grateful
