    Default new facebook format

    does anyone else hate the new facebook format their page is in? is every facebook page like that now or did they just change it.

    it kind of has information all over the place and is hard to tell the most recent post

    Facebook has 2 format:
    - old one
    - new one named timeline format where nothing is all over the place, everything is following the timeline located vertically at the center of the page.

    There are 2 formats as Vincent stated, but the old format will probably go away in the next few days as everyone is being forced to move to Timeline.

    One of the issues with finding things is that some articles can be flagged to stay at the top. When this happens, it can be easy to miss new posts as they do not show up at the top of the timeline.

    Personally, I hate the view with a passion. And I'm not normally much of a hater.

    I don't frequent it enough to realize the format had changed, but what I hate is the hassle required for me to find the newly posted clues! (OK, likely a result of statement #1). ~;O)

    Maybe they can flag the new clues to keep them on top so they don't get lost in the mess

    Finally, I'm not a lurker anymore. I haven't changed to the new format yet. Guess they will change it when they want to. I've heard that if you use Google Chrome you can go back to the old way.

    Why are you talking that it is a mess ?

    You have just to follow to line from top to bottom, then you will have a dot leading to a post on the left or on the right.
    Higher is most recent, lower is older

    As mentioned, the most recent post is not always on top and can be easily missed by sections that are flagged to stay on top. Many people missed the first clue that was released after the format changed because of this.

    In my opinion, yes it's a mess. The old format is much clearer. This is of course only my own opinion and I'm sure Vincent you will whole heartedly disagree and respond appropriately.

    Look for the small clickable box at the top of the timeline, just below the header.

    If you change that from "highlights" to "posts by page" the newer stuff will go to the top and it will sort in date order.
