Facebook Gets A Facelift

An increasing number of lawyers are using the social networking Web site Facebook for making connections with lawyers in other practice areas or other geographic areas. Personally, I have three of my firm’s blogs listed at Facebook, and encourage readers to join the Kraft & Associates Blog Network there.

A story today by the Associated Press detailed some upcoming changes at Facebook, apparently to be rolled out over the next week or so. Here are excerpts from the story:

The popular online hangout Facebook is sporting a new look to reflect changes in how its members communicate with each other and how they share photos and updates about their lives.

Central to the redesign, to be unveiled Monday, is an expanded Wall, the section of a member’s personal profile page where friends can leave comments and photos. People will now be able to add items more easily, and the Wall will incorporate reports on a user’s activities previously found on a user’s “Mini-Feed.”

The development comes as Facebook and rival MySpace from News Corp. vie to become the central hub of online communications. Both sites are reorganizing their layouts this summer to reduce clutter and make information easier to find.

The changes stem from the growing comfort people have with sharing details about their personal lives more frequently and in smaller bursts – such as on the “microblogging” site Twitter.

The Facebook redesign seeks to make these now-disparate pieces of information easier to find at a central location. Now the site will organize information into tabs to reduce clutter.

About This Blog

The title of this blog reflects my attitude toward those government agencies and insurance companies that routinely mistreat injured or disabled people. As a Dallas, Texas lawyer, I've spent more than 45 years trying to help those poor folk, and I have been frustrated daily by the actions of the people on the other side of their claims. (Sorry if I offended you...)
