THIS Is How Facebook Should Look   Facebook Concept | UI Design

This amazing Facebook UI concept comes from Barton Smith. The project is called Facebook Facelift. He wanted to make Facebook into a more streamlined experience, restructuring the site and creating a more linear interface. The site was mainly reconstructed around the content, the bits people want to see and absorb.

Note: This concept was made in 2009.

The Facebook Facelift is a self initiated project to challenge the form and functionality of Facebook. It’s 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.

  1. Too much grey :/

  2. Erik Knudsen says:

    so it should look like google+?

  3. This concept was made in 2009…

  4. but it’s not out yet?

  5. JiaHao says:

    when can it be use or how to use it (if it can be use for now)?

  6. Nope. That’s why it is called a “concept”.

  7. Anonymous says:

    Great Concept, shame the facebook UI is still clutter heaven. 

  8. Erik Knudsen says:

    good call. i still prefer google+ either way

  9. Chase Adams says:

    First of all, the quick nav buttons have no helpers to orient the user to what in the heck they’re navigating to…that’s worthless. Those are only useful in carousels where you know content types are remaining consistent & content itself is being updated.

    Second, search is almost universally towards the top right cover of the screen, moving it to the bottom left is just confusing & unnecessary.

  10. Techin5 says:

    Not going to lie, I like it.

  11. Looks pretty but looks like a usability nightmare: small navigational buttons, no sense of what’s important, wasted width in boxes/lack of columned content, low contrast, small font… 

    Pretty != Usable

  12. If you read correctly, this UI concept was not made by anyone from UltraLinx or has any affiliation with UltraLinx. 

    It was made by Barton Smith and I’m sure he has his reasons for the 600pixel wide screenshots.
