Facebook Facelift, a fingerlicking redesign prototype

A real, yet only slight Facebook redesign is just around the corner, so we prefer to dream about a more exciting, completely new approach to the social network’s user interface. Kudos to the guys at Thinking Out Loud for creating the Facebook Facelift project, a fingerlicking smooth UI prototype I bet you’ll want to spend hours playing with. Of course, we’ll never see such a radical change of Facebook… or will we? Designer Bart already received a phone call from the company…

The Facebook Facelift is a self initiated project to challenge the form and functionality of Facebook. Its streamlined, structured and linear interface is more comprehendible, enhancing the user experience and absorbability of content.

The home page features many new benefits: the publisher toolbar enables users to post content from any page within facebook, saving time in navigating needlessly through profiles; the streams’ two-tiered filter (content type & content contributers) also creates a more coherent structure with the core elements retaining their position throughout most of the site; and the live feed displays a constant stream of all content posted in a users network, which expands upon mouse over.

Profiles also integrate with the system more seamlessly. Just as friend lists filter the stream by a select number of people, user profiles simply filter content to a single person, creating a clearer and more comprehendible layout.

 The Facebook Publisher subsite is designed to support the growing use of Facebook as a primary form of contact as email once was. The separate address, publisher.facebook.com, would be permitted in businesses where Facebook is banned, allowing users to send messages without the distractions of user generated content. The interface is a mirror of the publisher toolbar ensuring a consistent interface.
