In a way I agree with you guys. I am not too fond of the new layout, but I am getting used to it, and I've come to decide that it's not that bad.
The concept on facebook is to connect with people, friends that you might not talk to very often. Or to find old friends that you have lost contact with. There are many reasons people use facebook
Personally, I love facebook. I have my life on it, all my pictures, wallposts, messages and friends. I looove facebook, even though they changed the layout. I would never, ever resort to myspace or those other crappy sites.
