What Do You Think Of Our New Look? [MakeUseOf Poll]

What Do You Think Of Our New Look? [MakeUseOf Poll]

Last week we asked you how many friends you currently have on Facebook. If you thought everyone was crazy over Facebook and had 1500 friends, think again. The results tell a different story, and so do the comments. Have you ever heard of a bell curve? Get a load of these results:

Out of 409 votes in total, 2.5% have more than 3000 friends on Facebook, 6% have 1000-3000 friends, 8.5% have less than 20 friends, 10.5% have 500-1000 friends, 14.5% have 300-500 friends, 19% have 20-100 friends, and 21% have 100-300 friends on Facebook, which is the most common range (and is also mine!). Another 19% of the voters don’t have a Facebook account, which is saying something about our readers.

Full results and this week’s poll after the jump.

Don’t forget to check out last week’s best comment by Mic Hall who had some interesting insights about Facebook, and won a free MakeUseOf t-shirt!

This week’s poll question is: What Do You Think Of Our New Look?

Love our t-shirts? The best comment in this poll will get one of our geeky t-shirts. That’s right, for free! So get commenting!

As I’m sure you’ve noticed already, we have a new look. We already asked for you opinions over at MakeUseOf Answers and got very interesting replies, but since not all of you are active on Answers (now’s your chance!), we’d like to ask you again, this time using poll style to make it easier to answer. As usual, not all possible replies can be included in the poll, so please feel free to share your opinions in the comments below!

What parts of the new look do you especially like? What parts need to change? What would you like to see on MakeUseOf that is missing from the new theme? Tell us everything.

    Due to the new layout I have stopped using MUO. Too much of an overload on the eyes and too slow. I’m not saying go back to the old layout, but this new one needs LOTS of work.

    Sorry guys, it shouldn’t have been touched. It is Harder to find what you are looking for; It reminds me of Feedly a bit with it’s magazine style but on Feedly it works. The site now takes longer to load. I don’t like the constant updates of who got 1 point and who got 50 points etc… . I will always be a loyal MUO member. I just dislike what you have done. (Sorry for the harshness).

    As with anything new, there is a period of learning required. To speed that transition, it might be nice to have someone do a 1-minute video screencast or talking head that shows how a person can usefully get the most of the new features/organization to accomplish the things accustomed to before, but now in the new way, and with the enhancements that are supported now.

    I will not visit this website if you not revert back or provide an option to view old theme.

    P.S. Some months ago Lifehacker changed their layout. Everyone hated it. They listened to their visitors and switched back to a linear blog-like setup.
