Old Facebook Will be Gone Next Week; Better App Access Coming

It appears the long transition process from the “old” to the “new,” redesigned Facebook will be completed next week. Facebook’s Josh Elman said today that Facebook will “actively migrate all our users to the new profile” over the next week, at which point the old profile will be a thing of the past.

In addition, Elman hinted at a new feature that Facebook will be releasing to help make applications easier to find in the new design. Many developers have been complaining that the new design makes it too hard for users to access Platform applications.

Based on some of this feedback, we’re working on one more interesting feature to help make your applications more easily accessible to your users. We’ll provide more details as we finalize the design, but it won’t require any changes on your end.

We’ll keep you up to date on all the changes Facebook makes as the new profile rolls out to everyone in the coming days.
