The social network Facebook has rolled out a new home page layout. The top navigation as well as the sidebar and footer have been changed. Facebook Engineer Jing Chen said:
We hope 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.
To introduce you to the most important changes, I have published a screen-cast highlighting them.
What’s new on the Facebook home page
- Near the Facebook logo, you will find icons for your newest notifications, requests and messages.
- The side menu displays your applications, games and friends. From there, you can access Facebook Chat.
- The top-right area provides you with everything related to you and your account. Log-out is located in the Account menu, too.
