Facebook Redesign Coming Next Week; Will Members Revolt Again?

This story was written by Tameka Kee.
When Facebook overhauled its user interface last year, dozens of "protest groups" cropped up from members that didn't like it. The social network stuck to its guns on the changes, and Chris Cox, Facebook's director of product, said people actually ended up using the site more.

Starting next Wednesday, March 11, another redesign will take effectand while it's aimed at giving members more control over the info they put into "the stream," as well as the info they receivethere's bound to be some feedback from Facebook's increasingly vocal user base.

More to come.
