Do You Love It Or Hate It? The new look facebook has now been live for a few weeks. It rolled out across the globe at different times so depending which part of the world you live in you might have had longer to explore than others. I am assuming that by now most of you will have probably got over the initial shock and started to find your way around. Some people seem to love it, others hate it with a passion. There are many differing opinions and I wanted to give you my take on it and invite all my readers to share their own personal experiences S.W.O.T In this blog post I will be using a standard S.W.O.T analysis in relationship to how the new look facebook will affect people who are  using social networking for business purposes and examining its Strengths, Weaknesses, Opportunities and Threats. I will break it  up into four parts to make digestion a little easier. And allow you to comment on each aspect. I hope that some of the developers  and programmers take note so that facebook can be improved for all its users Part 1 - Strengths Part 2 - Weaknesses Part 3 - Opportunities Part 4 - Threats Initial Negative Experience I must admit that my own first experiences with it were not so pleasurable and I wrote quite a long and negative blog post about my  frustrations. I decided to wait before I published and on reflection I am glad that I waited. After a week of playing around with it I now  feel in a much better position to give a more balanced overview of the changes and include the benefits and not just the problems  that the new design creates. Part 1 - Strengths Clean Layout One of the major strengths of the new look facebook is the clean layout and the simplifying of the profile page so that when you click on a friends profile you immediately have access to their wall/news feed and can quickly see what they have been up to recently and send them a message directly. Tabbed Browsing The Profile has been divided up into tabs so that all your personalinformation is in one place and all your applications are on one tab now called boxes. For many people this has been of huge benefit. You now don't have to wait for ages for a profile to load if a friendhas installed 200 applications. Overall the platform seems to be running a lot faster than it did before. Although the tabbed feature is only limited to the profile and doesn't yet extend to other areas where it is desperately needed. Integration of Wall and Minifeed Facebook have integrated the wall and the minifeed into one aggregated feed that takes up 70% of the space on your profile page. This major prominence is because facebook has always been designed to focus on creating and maintaining real relationships and building a sense of community. Quickly being able to know what all your friends are doing plays an important role.
