Facebook is giving its redesign a redesign in response to a chorus of user complaints, the Wall Street Journal reports. Users griped that the Twitter-like real-time feed featured in the new format was crowding out the information they really wanted to see. A company blog acknowledged the negative feedback and promised an update to address the issue within weeks.
"We're trying to present the right balance between what's happening right now and what's interesting over a longer period of time," wrote Facebook's director of product. "We realize that both are important and getting them both right is crucial for the product to work." The company also plans to let users switch off updates from third-party applications.
