Briefing Facebook design Feb10

  1. It received least resistance among users. Partly because this design leaves the feed unchanged.
  2. Control items were changed. The left menu gives me the immediate impression of a Microsoft Task Bar.
  3. The search bar is moved in between, centralizing social search and reminding me of Google. Of course, search is powered by Microsoft Bing.
  4. Strategic move: high-light(er) applications and games without interfering with news feed. War with Apple apps?
  5. Personally I like the idea of utilizing Facebook as a news reader. Apparently it can’t replace Google Reader and Twitter, but many people I care about are on Facebook, not Twitter.

Conclusion: this is what I believe a web platform should be like.
