New Facebook. Totally not required. Not so user friendly arrrgh?

I just have to say that the NEW FACEBOOK is not very user friendly. They changed everything.

Rule: If its not broken why fix it. FB should just improve on what the users recommend. Changing the whole design & flow of thins just serves to disrupt whatever people already know. People have already gotten so used to the OLD FB interface. They know where everything is. And them boom, they changed it all. I can't even find the basic EDIT PROFILE link when i logged in??? Hmmm, why do all the social sites like to revamp their interface. Revamp design is ok, revamp interface?? its like changing your already successful strategy.

Its better to value add & keep value add, not change & be something new???

I am a Web Strategist, looking frm a strategy point of view, FB users are increasing rapidly, there is no need to change. Unless ur users r declining, like what friendster did. Friendster changed in the direction of FB to add newsfeed functionality etc & now they are slowoly getting back more users. But FB now, this change? for what purpose?
