New Facebook layout deconstructed

Heh. Somebody thinks the new Facebook layout and design is more than a bit inspired by Google+ and Twitter. It may be a bit premature to see where Facebook is going with this though.

Supposedly the other shoe drops this week at F8, the Facebook developer conference.

The event is being livestreamed (video) here, starting at 10AM Pacfic.

People are already breathless saying “Facebook to be Profoundly Changed.”

  • Twitter can predict the stock market:
    “Measuring how calm the Twitterverse is on a given day can foretell the direction of changes to the Dow Jones Industrial Average three days later with an accuracy of 86.7 percent.”
  • Engineers hold our future in their hands.

  • Facebook is unnatural.
    "These are all pretty great ways to deal with this kind of news, but not at the same time. A Facebook discussion… would travel down several different paths simultaneously and I’d be stuck in the middle trying to participate with all subgroups in whichever way I normally interact with each. This has happened to me several times… It’s like being pulled in several directions at once, and the result is I just feel Facebook is completely useless for communicating with people."
  • Mahalo 4.0: All about learning:
    "Jason Calacanis just gave a fun, very forthcoming overview of the history of Mahalo before describing its new mission: teaching stuff."
