Tablet friendly design is exactly why this is happening. and why it's happening first on casual content consumption sites

i have a feeling it has to do with mobile.

a vertical stack uses the best dimension of a portrait display , and many of these interfaces ( like the facebook and twitter native iOS apps ) will cover the nav with the content. new myspace slides left also.


let go of even your longest held beliefs,
the only truth is in observation.

The new YouTube and the new.myspace.com both have done away with top navigation and are opting for left hand nav menus. Facebook and Twitter still have top nav menus. SoundCloud is trying to do away with the top nav as well.

What gives? Any information designers out there want to comment?

Is this so that all sites are more tablet friendly, putting the content in the center with left right sidebars?
