Why did Facebook ditch its beautiful redesign?

Why did Facebook ditch its beautiful redesign?

A year ago, Facebook rolled out a great new design with bigger pictures - for some people. But the majority never got the design, and now all users got a design that's not as fancy. Why?

According to Business Insider, Facebook product designer Julie Zhuo has the answer.

She says the reason Facebook went with the older-looking design is that, unlike Facebook employees ... and the kinds of people who read blog posts about design, most Facebook users still have older computers with crappy monitors.

For these people, the older-looking design just works better than the photo-rich one Facebook showed off a year ago.
