A Facelift For Facebook

Facebook is set to undergo a facelift, the first major redesign of the social site since it launched. The big problem with facebook is the success of the 3rd party applications and the cluttered affect they have on the user's profile pages. I am often annoyed at the nonsensical messages from applications such as booze mail, that eat up the real estate on my screen. Facebook's answer is to split the main profile into five separate pages, all accessible through tabs at the top of the page. Thankfully, the BBC is reporting that it is likely "Applications like games and quizzes will also be moved on to their own dedicated page." You can read the entire story here.
