Facebook has begun rolling out a major redesign of its social networking site this week with a cleaner and less cluttered user interface. The new design will gradually become available to Facebook’s more than 80 million users over few days.
In the new design, Facebook removed the leftmost column that contains the ‘Search’ and ‘Applications’, and moved the search box and applications menu to the main menu on the top. The site content width has also being expanded by about an inch. These two design changes give a less boxed-up feel to the whole site.
