Facebook gets a facelift

Guess you can call it a facelift for Facebook. And like a literal facelift, it will be up to those who see it to decide whether it was worth the trouble.

The social networking site will force its 100 million users to get used to a new look, starting today. The changes to the site were first unveiled seven weeks ago, but users were able to decide whether they wanted to switch over. If they didn't like the new set-up, they were just a mouse-click away from going back to the old style. That ends this week.

Users will no longer be able to switch back to the way the site was. Facebook founder Mark Zuckerberg has tried making radical changes to products on the site and he has ended up apologizing for doing so. If users end up alienated it could drive traffic to rival social networks like MySpace and Bebo.
