Facebook Profile ToggleWritten by Simon Barker on January 20, 2008 · Filed under Internet
I joined Facebook last summer and not long after was when they opened it up to all the 3rd party application developers, which was when your requests started stacking up on your homepage and your profile page started being overwhelmed by all the different application boxes.
This used to really bug me when the requests were all listed separately down the side of the homepage, thankfully Facebook improved that system and grouped it and I now only see the huge list when I go to the request page!
The other issue was with having loads of applications set up on your profile page, would mean that it started to really clutter your Facebook profile page, I’d be removing applications to tidy it up because one of the initial things I liked about Facebook over the likes of myspace.com was that general design and layout was quite clean cut and good to look at. The more applications that get added the more cluttered it gets.
Thankfully Facebook has now introduced a toggle feature which will initially hide as many applications on your profile page that you specify and will only display them once you click the “Show More Profile Boxes” link at the bottom of the page.
Do you use Facebook? What do you think to this change? What do you think to the whole social networking site?
