The new facebook layout is planned to take over tomorrow (sept. 29). What can you do if you find it difficult or the changes hinder your flow? You can change it. There are loads of websites, tricks, and add-ons out there designed by developers to help you maintain the settings that you want.
One of my favorite settings is the “I have already read that” setting which like its name shows facebook stories that you have not marked as read and not the same 3 posts all the time.
Check out the new features tomorrow and see what you like and what you don’t, then change it to suit your needs. Remember that Facebook is a business networking site for you and that you need it to operate in your terms!
