The article reports on the decision of Facebook to change the layout of its social networking Web site. The social-networking site was offered as an opt-in version since July 2008, which is already adopted by 40 percent of its registered users. According to the author, the new look of the site is cleaner and simpler, but profiles are displayed as tabs, while feeds are more central in profile pages. The company claims that the new layout should allow faster navigation.
