We’ve known it for quite some time now: Facebook’s new design will soon be Facebook’s only design, although many users aren’t particularly happy about it. Some 30-40 million people have already made the switch. And, we know have an exact time frame, and the clock is ticking fast: by the end of this week, all users will be dragged, kicking and screaming, to the new design.

Status update: John is going to deal with it and move on.

I'm an avid Facebook user - it's one of the few ways to regularly get a response from me for my friends...(I realise how bad that is)....but I don't like the new layout. Do you think it'll affect user numbers?

Mobbsey, thanks for the reply. I too am an avid user, we have built an application called "I Am Teacher" on Facebook and in the old version, it was easy for teachers to gain access either by the boxes in the bottom portion or through the application icons. They have made it so difficult and more clicks to get to the resources that people use. Thus far, some 30 million of the 100,000 million folks have downloaded it so I'm not sure if it will affect numbers. I think that we use it so regularly, we will adapt. Look at gas prices, not much we can do about that, and we still need to drive our cars to get to and from.
