    ...is a complete piece of jumbled crap. it's aesthetic is awful, and it ruins a lot of user-friendly features such as:
    -easy access to applications and groups
    -the wall is now merged with the news feed
    -etc.

    anyone on facebook who agrees with me should go join one of these groups:
    http://www.facebook.com/home.php#/group.php?gid=27233634858
    http://www.facebook.com/home.php#/group.php?gid=21195574231

    both groups are growing EXTREMELY fast and have almost a million members between the two of them.

    all my groups I joined are totally wiped out, and the only thing that cheers me up is the guess the sketch game.

    Everything looks normal on mine and I still have the same two groups I've always had.

    they're currently offering "test runs" of the new facebook, i.e. you can switch over to the new layout if you want, and you can also switch back.

    at some point this month though, they are going to permanently change the layout.

    NVM, I don't like facebook. Myspace is easier to navigate.

    God, I really dislike the new Facebook layout. While I like the idea of separating apps from the main profile (I don't really care what apps you have - I just want to look at your info IF I CAN FIND IT) I really dislike that the mini-feed and the wall have been merged. It's a mess.

    I also dislike all the white space. It looks thrown together. The current layout looks nice, everything is bordered off. And the main profile should ALWAYS be the main focus. Except it's not in the new layout...

    I would join the groups against it if I thought it would do anything. But it's not like they're gonna be like OH WE HAVE SEEN THE ERRORS OF OUR WAYS or anything. I really just wish they'd have an opt-out option. I wouldn't give a crap then.

    I don't think I'd mind the new layout if I could figure out how to do more "posted items." However, I haven't been able to do that since I made my first one. It's like the option has just disappeared.

    Not a fan of the what they want to change it to. I like the old layout better.

    The new layout sucks but I guess I'll get used to it.

    Totally agree. Plus the 'Space has the option to block any emails that has anything to do with those god awful applications, so that alone makes it automatically superior.

    I have all those annoying Facebook emails blocked; it's called a spam filter.

    I have that too, but I'm talking about the messages on the actual Facebook site, not the email notification.

    I'm slowly getting used to the new facebook layout. I HATED it at first, but as soon as they posted that soon this will be the PERMANENT layout, I decided to switch to it for good.

    I guess I really don't have any problems with it. It took some getting used to, but when I did, I liked it.

    As can the 'book (and not just the email notifications either). I've got a ton of applications (usually variations on 'poking') blocked.

    I rarely use Facebook, mainly to get in touch with my relatives.

    As for the new layout... ugh, don't like it.
