Or do you prefer the previous layout?

Even if Trump were to be revealed as the Dark Lord of the Sith, he's still better than the last four presidents we've had.

Right off the bat I prefer the older layout better, but maybe I'd have to spend more than 30 seconds here to see if the new layout grows on me. 😊

There are 4 layouts available.  I will probably go back to the old layout eventually.   But, like you, I'm giving it a chance before I switch back.

One thing I noticed is this layout is very functional for mobile devices.  It might come down to how prevalent our online users will be using their cell phones and tablets.

You know, one of the classes I am teaching this semester (kind of out of my field, but whatever) is called Digital Media and Society.  One of the topics we cover is whether online communities are true communities or pseudo-communities.  We also discuss the distinction between online communities and social networks, and how the two have more or less blended together as they each share characteristics nowadays as the other.

Anyway, just bringing this up because you and I are part of the old-school online community mentality, which is epitomized by the classic internet discussion forum.  I have realized for a while now for most people, this format has effectively been replaced by sites like Twitter.  However, there's still something to be said for being able to post within a closed system of known individuals, rather than posting on an open platform in 280 characters or fewer. 🦃

Yes I have had similar classes in my MBA program. That is why I have the activity stream function here as well.

Okay I decided to go back to the traditional layout.  I tried to get used to the other layout, but it just seemed like it forced me to make extra clicks.  We will stick with this layout unless we get a bunch of new members who don't like it.  We will see then.

I think it's nicer now since I can see on one screen where the most recent posts are.

Agreed.  It's leaner and more efficient.
