Facebook to Unveil New Redesign Website

When the first time Mark Zuckerberg started Facebook in college 4 1/2 years ago, he has learned that he cannot make dramatic changes to the popular online hangout without triggering uproar among indignant users who preferred the status quo.

For all these years, he has been struggling hard to find a way that makes all things easier, things that can ensure him to do significant improvement, so he would not have to issue public apologies like what he did in each of the previous two years after springing new products on users.

Now, he must test his theory to begin some dramatic changes that forcing its 100 million users to adapt to a redesigned website, whether they like the new look or not. Moreover, since unveiling the makeover seven weeks ago, Facebook had left it up to users to decide whether they wanted to switch over. If they disliked what they saw, the converts could just click on a link to switch back to the old format.

Unfortunately, the option will be taken away from all users by the end of the week; a shift that Zuckerberg already knows will alienate some of Facebook's audience and raise the risk of driving more traffic to rival social networks like MySpace, Friendster, and Bebo.

Zuckerberg said, "Any change can be a big deal to our users because this is how they connect with their family and friends." Therefore, when we move things around, it can be perceived as being not a positive thing even when it is a positive change. Zuckerberg added, more than 40 million users already have checked out the new design and about 30 million embraced it without reverting to the old look.
