Another week, another change that crept through Microsoft's new Office 365 change management process to provoke some confusion for customers.

M. Hunsberger's insight:

The line at the bottom says it all: "In any case, the real problem here is communication once again. Despite the much-vaunted Office 365 change management process and the new Office 365 roadmap that lists all the features Microsoft is working on, the fact remains that they never communicated the design change and its impact to customers before it was turned on. That shouldn’t happen."

Twitter Rolls Out New Layout That Looks Exactly Like Facebook - CraveOnline | Change Management | Scoop.it

Twitter had been rolling out the new design and making it accessible to a number of randomized users, but now it is available for everyone to use. There's still the option of keeping the old layout, but Twitter will force you to change at a later date.
