The most significant changes which have been seen are in the way the facebook displays data this is the only change which the users can observe in the front end.

The only drawback is you cannot show off by setting those long large profile pictures which you used to set earlier to impress your friends but the plus point is you are now provided with the large space for setting your cover pic ,where previously used to reside the banner including 5 recently tagged pics.

But as the time has passed the users have started  turning there backs to facebook they are not anymore interested in just surfing through the facebook news feed, tagging pics or the way facebook looks etc.They want to spend their time in searching something more productive and beneficial.
