For those who find that the new Facebook layout frustrating!

What was your first reaction when you have to read the live feed?? When I first saw the changes, I really don't like it at all, but it's great to know that actually we still have the options to reset the page back to the old layout. Just go to the menu on the top left of your Home and click on More. Then, drag the Status Updates to the top above the News Feed. So, instead of the News Feed on the top, now your Status Updates will be on top. Click on it and it will become your default homepage. No more news feed that cause you headache!!

I did not know this I'll have to try it out and see what happens. Whenever I first noticed the new update I was pretty annoyed. I hate it so much. I think it's pretty useless. I really hate when Facebook decides to fix something that was never broken in the first place because it ends up messing it up to begin with.

I agree with you. If the changes are for the better, I don't really mind, but if it's only make the users confused than they should think twice whether to implement the new things. They should focus on upgrading the system to be more user friendly and faster or how to block something we don't want or just any positive changes, but not something that is inconvenient. Just follow the steps I provided and the layout will be back to normal. I got that from my friend and from her friend, well, it's actually been passing around FB!

Hello, Ysabel! Like I mentioned in the response above, the new layout I was talking about was actually the one before the latest one. I am not sure whether the steps are applicable to the updated features because I haven't tried them, but like you said, since we've been FB-ing regularly, we would get familiarized with the pages and they actually seem OK now.

Hi corry, I for one am totally aggravated by the new facebook layout and would love to be able to switch it so I dont get those damn news feeds. But I do not see the "more" or for that matter the menu on the top left of the Home.....UGGHHH why do people feel the need to fix what isn't broke..I wish they would have just left facebook the way it was :)

Hi, WWW! Sorry, it took me so long to respond to this comment. I have some problems with the internet connection and now I am able to mylot as normal (I hope) he he... Actually, I was talking about the new layout a few months back before the latest one. I agree with you that it's getting complicated, but I guess we're getting used to it already so, it will be easier to navigate, right?!
