Facebook Design 2004-2011 [Screenshots]

Facebook.com was founded in 2004 and is today the  most popular social networking website in the world. Millions of users access it daily. However it has started losing it’s popularity and the main reason behind it, has been confusing features and design changes.  Facebook has made major changes almost every year.

Let’s have a look at all the design changes made by Facebook from 2004 to 2011 and including the yet to be launched Timeline profiles.







Timeline Profile:

Although Facebook is trying a lot to impress its users with new layout but every time they change the design its user starts joining pages like “We want the old Facebook Back”.

Don’t forget to tell us which was/is your Favorite Facebook layout.

My favorite is the last one (i.e.2011 Timeline layout). Love it a lot!

Great, but many users are still waiting for this feature who are not using Timeline as developers. Hopefully fb will launch it soon. 🙂

I hate timeline. It’s nothing but confusing to me… I hope they change it back.

FB developers used a simple yet attractive design from beginning itself. Nice collection

Facebook is working hard to bring something new to the table every year. That’s nice.

My favorite? The profile from 2006. I remember signing up for that profile. Me and a bunch of my friends dislike the new profile. Now I’m on Google+.

Facebook’s UI developers would go to hell. All of them. The most random UI logic ever.

With every new design it’s just bigger and bigger mess. I like 2006
