Facebook redesign - light

    This is my vision of the Facebook page (yep again).

    First of all, I know that I don’t have any ideas about the whole context, Facebook have strong ergonomists, usability tests, designers, analytics to make the interface become better and better. I am not saying it is better, and I don’t have included all aspects. It’s just like concept cars. You can still come up with ideas, even if it is not going to be a real car, you can take inspiration for real one.

    So here we go for Facebook (give me your opinion):

    ✔ A cleaner interface. Some interactions of the header have beed moved for a less cluttered interface.

    ✔ Less cluttered content. The actions of a post have been slightly reworked. Moreover, instead of showing « and 5600 others like», I try to make it more concise : «+ 5600 likes», and the numbers still clickable.

    ✔ The old actions buttons were « like, share, comment ». I have removed « comment » because this interaction is in the box « write a comment » below. (if there are some comments, they appear the same way than before).

    ✔ New button « Save a post » (the suitcase button). Need some work on the visual affordance, but i think it would be really important to be able to save a post that we really like (more than others ;) )

    ✔ Chat heads : Look the HD version attached ;) I find it would be really great to have these on the web version (if master IE agree). Also notice the chat is simpler. The like button of the chat disappear as soon as you start typing.

    ✔ Avatar badges : you might notice on the second post a little badge on the avatar. A friend is an avatar, but has also a mood depending on each post. I was also thinking maybe we can add custom badges (sports/love etc) available by default on your avatar ?

    I hadn’t enough free time to work on groups/pages and apps, but I would probably add them on the sidebar too.

    I would like to add that I am also working on real interfaces for some companies with a focus on usability, interactivity, visual, and UX. These companies allow me to post my design from January, so you should see some real stuff soon :)

    Comments, feedback, likes and follow are always welcome

    Have a nice day and i wish you a Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year :)

    What I like most about this design is I would enjoy spending time on Facebook. Thanks for your perspective! Definitely more current.

    @Afnizar Nur Ghifari why not? It is for their messenger application, so it would be logical to assume that it could become used on the main site in the future.

    Here is what annoys be about redesigns, and I've done a redesign (more of a facelift actually) of Facebook; they often change nothing, by changing everything. That might seem a bit contradictory, but here is what I mean. Usually the whole visual style is changed, tweaking a few areas, and that's great Facebook needs it, but usually even though everything changes visually, it's still the same old Facebook; nothing is new and worthy of calling this a redesign or a new direction.

    This might sound harsh, but I think you've got the idea wrong, esp with sharing and connecting, because there is only two posts from my friends showing and that's just stupid. We go to Facebook to see what is going on with friends, to share and connect and that seems totally ripped away; I feel like I've gone from a place like San Fran to a small town in Oklahoma; less of everything I want; more of what I don't. I'm not saying this to be mean, I just think you should really take into account of what Facebook is and why we use it (not so much anymore though).

    I mean why show pictures of the person I am talking to, whilst the chat head is exactly that; its redundant. Same thing with the comment box, is there a real reason why it extends past the grid you've created for content? Also, why is the person logged in picture so much larger than everyone else? 1. It takes up too much real-estate on the screen and second of all, Facebook is not about Me, it's about my friends, at least it used to be.

    Secondly, where are the ads? Facebook is funded by ads and sometimes I actually like the ads (not the ones randomly playing in my feed, but usually on the side) because I can actually see some deal I'm interested in; like an Abercrombie, mt, apple, etc sale.

    It looks nice, but for me that's it; you really should think more about functionality and usability; and more importantly think how the user is going to feel when they use the service - then you should focus on making it visually appealing.

    @Tyler Allen (ModernBits)
    If you read my first comment, I am just proposing new ideas, and I like to discuss with people why it could be a good or a bad idea. :) 

I am not working for Facebook, so I can’t redesign every interactions (ads …) These features are probably set with experts of each fields (design, marketing, etc…)

    
About your second point, you can still scroll the content, and the preview is smaller to fit the shot size. I think Facebook is currently too much cluttered, and each post has less impact.

    Showing the picture on the chat head helps the visual recognition (I am studying in ergonomics/usability, so I understand what do you mean, but redundant information can help the user to finish his task quicker and can improve visual recognition. It could be a good feature if you are talking with a group, with several people (for instance).

    I made the first picture bigger, because Facebook is also about sharing new content coming from you. I wanted to put a bigger emphasis on this. When the user goes on FB, he can quickly add content, or if he scrolls, focus moves on his friends.


    Thank you for your comment man, I like to discuss.
