Announcing the “PLEASE BRING THE SIGNPOST BACK” Facebook Group

Facebook has given itself (wince) another facelift. In celebration of its sixth birthday, the social networking site has redesigned its homepage and navigation with an eye toward increased usability. Among the improvements: A new search field, a more prominent chat tool and a revamped top menu.
In addition, a notifications icon has been changed from a signpost to a globe.

Fascinating.

And welcome news for the signpost-averse. Also, a total yawner–though to be fair, Facebook is probably wise to keep its design tweaks subtle given extraordinary levels of outrage some of its more substantial changes have inspired in the past.
