Let’s take a look at what were changed in the new Facebook home page. There are some change in this new design like now New requests, messages, and notifications are set on top left near facebook logo It has been simplified to make it easier to get to what’s new and important. They are using icons for requests, messages, and notifications light up when there’s something new you won’t want to miss. and search box also shifted to the top left after logo and notifications. Now search box , home and profile… menu are accessible at the top of every page.
On left menu section has been organized to make it easier for you to find and discover content from friends, read your messages, see what your friends are up to, access applications and more. Menus like News Feed, Messages and your Friends – are at the top, making it easier to keep up with what’s new. you’ve bookmarked have moved up the page for easy access. The new Applications and Games dashboards help you discover new and interesting information from your friends. Also on Friends Online provides quick links to chat with your friends, or quickly go online yourself. To edit your options, find Facebook Chat in the bottom bar.
