A few years back, Facebook contacted Information Architects to think up some ways to redesign the Facebook site. The plans that iA drew up were never implemented and after sitting on them for a while iA decided to just go ahead and show the design concepts to us to get our opinion on them.

In essence, iA changes the Facebook site to be a primarily 3-column page similar to an inbox or the default view settings in a mail application like Microsoft Outlook. By default, only two comments related to an item are shown and if you click on the item then it expands (the top image is a before and the image below is after an item has been clicked).

Overall, I really wouldn’t mind if Facebook was more like an inbox. I already treat it like one and seeing things this way would just make my life a bit easier.
