Fix this, Facebook!

Just a small thing that annoys me about the Facebook site. Look at the page head, the blue banner at the top of the page: (Click on images to embiggen.)

That’s the place where you see new notifications, messages and friend requests and from where you can quickly access settings, your profile, help, and search. Pretty useful.

Now take a look at what happens when you scroll down the page:

The page head is gone! As is the left-hand navigation!

Here’s what I think the site should look like scrolled down:

And it’s not like this sort of thing is hard to do. A little “position:fixed” goes a long way. Just look at the little chat box in the lower right corner. It stays where it is regardless of where you are on the page. So should the head banner and the navigation panel.

Get on this, Facebook!
