Google Previews Updated Blogger Interface at SXSW

Tumblr and Twitter may be the hot sharing sites in 2011, but millions of bloggers got their start on Google's free Blogger, a site that hasn't had major visual refresh since 2004. Google previewed Blogger's redesign at SXSW, and it looks like the classic blues and oranges are out in favor of whiter and wider writing tools. No word on launch date, but Google says it's coming in 2011....

Facebook Unveils New Profile Pages

Share On Sunday, Facebook announced big changes for Profile pages, hours before Mark Zuckerberg's '60 Minutes' interview. The biggest change is the emphasis on photos: from the summary at the top of the page to photos of your relationships, images dominate the new design. You'll also notice that Facebook has done away with the old tabbed interface that separated your wall, info, photos and events...

eBay Introduces Group Gift-Buying Service on Eve of Redesign

In an effort to capitalize on the all-important holiday shopping season, eBay is rolling out a full slate of new features -- including a social networking-based buying option -- to its online marketplace. As the Wall Street Journal reports, a freshly redesigned eBay home page will soon offer recommendations to users based on their previous searches, as well as a new list of hot items currently ...

Yahoo! Mail Beta Brings Speed, Twitter and Lots of Purple to Your E-mail

Share The drastic overhaul to Yahoo's e-mail service is one step closer to completion. The company announced in late September that Yahoo Mail would get a fresh look, integration with Facebook and Twitter, improved search capabilities and greatly improved speed. Now, the beta version of the new mail interface is finally available to all Yahoo! users. The updates aren't limited to the Web-based de...

MySpace Rolls Out New Redesign, Says It's No Longer Competing With Facebook

Remember that MySpace makeover that was in the works over the summer? Well, it's finally arrived, and, as expected, the new MySpace focuses more heavily on music and entertainment -- the bread and butter, apparently, of the once-mighty social network. Taking its cue from Facebook, Twitter and Foursquare, MySpace's home page will now feature a steady stream of tidbits about musicians, movies ...

Good News: MySpace Unveils New Logo. Bad News: It's Still MySpace.

Share In July, MySpace revealed it was working on a sparkling new site redesign, in the hopes that a new look would give the social network a boost in traffic. Instead of throwing in the towel and wallowing in self pity, however, the once-proud site is taking another shot at online relevance -- with a new logo. The logo, which was unveiled at Friday's Warm Gun Design conference in San Francis...

Yahoo! 'Accordion' Search Page to Help Users Stay 'Entertained'

In an attempt to set it apart from rival Google, Yahoo! has now launched a revamped search page, which the company hopes will allow users "to be entertained, to be productive and stay informed." The new search page, which went live today, certainly stands in stark contrast to Google's comparatively spartan layout. Although most search topics won't be affected immediately, Yahoo! users searchin...

IMDB Unveils Site Redesign Ahead of 20th Anniversary

In an attempt to make its platform more user friendly, the Internet Movie Database (IMDB) launched a major site redesign this week, with a particular emphasis on increasing video footage and streamlining site aesthetics. IMDB founder and CEO Col Needham tells the AP that his movie site underwent a makeover primarily to "emphasize the visual nature of film and TV." It's also no coincidence that th...

Democrat Rebranding Effort Results in Overly Simple Website, Logo

With the political climate turning against them, the Democrats have taken on a massive rebranding ahead of the November elections. Central to this image overhaul is a new logo and website, the latter of which is more reminiscent of the latest Twitter app than a political party dominated by old white people (and not in a good way.) The old block "DNC" letters, once filled with an U.S. flag pattern...

New Digg Launches, Stumbles on Roll Out

After months of testing, the dramatically redesigned Digg has finally been opened to the public. Upon visiting the site, things immediately look different, but, hopefully, are sufficiently familiar to keep the social news site's user base from abandoning it. The once-king of viral news has increasingly suffered at the hands of more convenient sharing platforms like Twitter and Facebook, so, in or...

NSFW Haven Chatroulette Getting a Redesign?

Andrey Ternovskiy, creator of the infamous Chatroulette, has taken down his site. Perhaps due to the pervasive presence of penii on the cam-sharing network, Ternovskiy writes, "The experiment #1 is over for now. Thanks for participating – Redesigned and updated version of the website will be launched tomorrow." (With fewer phalli?) Shawn Fanning, creator of Napster and CR adviser, has also ...

Welcome to the New Switched!

Hello and welcome to the new Switched! There's no question this is the biggest launch in the history of the site, and it's far more than a simple visual change. You'll find new experiences with everything from our stories to videos, and the new site represents a rethinking of how to navigate and use everything we love about Switched. One of our biggest frustrations with the old version was how...

Evite Gets a Redesign, Nerds Still Hate It

TechCrunch is mad at Evite. The Web-based invitation generator has fallen out of style in the last several years, mainly due to a ghastly UI. But Evite has, like the party phoenix of petits fours and mylar balloons, risen from the ashes of its own burning, and redesigned its site. But Alexia Tsotsis at TechCrunch still thinks that the new look is "not attractive anyway you slice it." We took a...

MySpace Profile Redesign in the Works, Welcomes Site to Post-2005

If any of you out there still use MySpace, you'll be excited to know that MySpace is getting its first significant makeover in ages, according to Mashable. Taking cues from Facebook, and its own MySpace Lite experiment, the new MySpace profiles being tested strip out some of the bloat, streamline navigation and de-emphasize comments from other users. You'll notice upon visiting one of the rede...

How to Resuscitate the Old Google, at Least Temporarily

After briefly testing and demonstrating alterations to both its logo and its search results, Google fully implemented a new system last week. When entities and companies alter any aspect of their established brand, though, consistent and devoted users frequently mourn, and sometimes revolt against, the new looks and interfaces. For those who considered the old, succinct Google to be perfectly c...
