Facebook Responds to Complaints About New Homepage
Well, there you have it. You got the new Facebook, and, just as we expected, you complained. Loudly. And yesterday Facebook went ahead and responded via a post on its official blog. The good news is that the company has heard your requests. And the bad news? Well, let's just say you're not getting the old Facebook back.
So what can you expect from the Facebook team in the near future?
- Live updates: You'll no longer have to repeatedly hit refresh to see who just tagged you in a photo.
- Increased control over application updates: You'll be able to turn off those annoying 'pirate vs. vampire' updates.
- More friend filters: You may not mind being Facebook friends with that annoying kid from high school, but you don't want to see updates about how smart his dog is every time you log on.
- Friend requests and invites: These important notifications will be moved to the top, right-hand corner to make them more prominent on the home page.

Take comfort in knowing that, although the Facebook folks have no intention of reverting to the old design, they will continue to update (and, hopefully, improve) the biggest time-waster of the early 21st century. [From: Facebook]
