First Screenshot of New Facebook Design

The Facebook Profile Preview team just released a screenshot of the new Facebook UI that will be rolled out in the upcoming weeks as part of the Facebook profile redesign. In addition to redesigning the profile page, Facebook is making some pretty major changes to core navigation on the site as well: the left navigation menu is gone.

  • The Applications menu now sits at the top of the page, instead of on the left side. Within the new Applications menu, there will be “Bookmarks” and “Recent Applications” sections.  You will be able to add apps to your “Bookmarks” section.
  • The Search box now sits in the top menu as well.
  • The “Profile” link has been replaced by your first name and last initial – e.g. “Rebekah C”.
  • Facebook ads will now appear on the right side of the page, instead of on the left. This will make the left side seem relatively bare.

What do you think of the new design?
