MyYearbook Unveils Its New, Community-Inspired Design

Mon, Feb 1, 2010


As far as social networking sites go, MyYearbook may not hold the top spot in terms of popularity, but, according to TechCrunch,  the developers behind the website have proven that they are willing to do something other social networking sites haven’t, and that’s truly listen to fans.

MyYearbook has gone under some heavy visual changes recently, with the designs therein being approved by the vast majority of users on the site – over 70%, if the following chart is anything to go by.

After users were polled for their suggestions as to how they would like the site to look, users were allowed to vote on various mockups created by the company until this new, final design was agreed upon by the majority.

The layout makes some major changes in the way that games are accessed on the website, by creating a whole toolbar at the top of the page that combines one-click access to these games with the site’s main navigation area.

As the changes to the website are continually rolled out, users will eventually be greeted with a Chatter stream, similar to Facebook’s Friend feed feature, which will contain multiple tabs, those for their own, already-established friendships, and one for meeting new people with similar tastes or those who live in their same area.

For more details about the new layout, check out this company video:
