Personally, I do not like the new home page. Recognizing that some probably will, but some will not, is there any reason the toggle switch cannot simply be left in place and users get to choose which version of the home page they personally get to use?
Reasons (for what it's worth, and this will be different for each person - pro or con):
The new home page is too "busy" - too much going on.
There are features I really don't come to FamilySearch to use.
I like the fewer larger spaces devoted to the main features of the "original" (meaning the most recent home page used for an extended period of time before this new one became available. (This is related to the first item above, concerning the new home page being too "busy.")
Again, please let us keep the "old" home page if we wish, but keeping the toggle switch. I watched a video elsewhere within a FHD web page where this new home page is likened to Linked-In. Linked-In is a social media/job-related web site. If I wanted that kind of experience here, that would be one thing. But there are marvelous other ways to share information with others about my ancestors, and that's not what I came to FamilySearch for.

I totally agree ...
That Said ...
Knowing 'FamilySearch', I doubt, that such will happen ( ie. NO ability, to 'Switch', backwards; and, forwards).
They will NOT, want to MAINTAIN, Two (x2) Versions ... an OLD, and, a NEW ...
ps: I REALLY wish, that 'FamilySearch', would STOP turning/changing 'FamilySearch', to look like "Social Media"
pps: And, ONLY, appeal, to the YOUNGER Generations
We understand the need to evolve and improve, and we can accept the new home page, but would like some additions on it: The site map, the "help others," and the language globe. Right now we have to pick "Overview" before seeing these items.
the new page is not for me !!!!!
