Another Casualty Of the Facebook Redesign: Network Pages To Be Discontinued


Facebook doesn’t think a social network needs to have Network Pages. And maybe it doesn’t. I didn’t even know they existed until someone told me they are about to be killed.

When you join Facebook, you can also join certain sub-networks tied to where you live, went to school, or work. Those are being replaced by Groups, although any networks you already belong to will remain intact. You just won’t be able to see the activities on that network where members do so today, which is the Networks Page.

This appears to be part of Facebook’s planned site redesign that is meant to make it simpler to use. (A much bigger change is the way applications will be added in the future).

Maybe nobody was using the Networks Pages. Does this change bum anybody out?
