I love the new page.
I am only starting to make my way through it. Haven't had an issue with load times thurfar.
The inspiration from Twitter is clear, but that's a good thing. I love being able to see what everyone in my stream is up to in terms of contributing to forum conversations, following others, etc. My only issue is that I don't follow enough people! But that will be changing now that I can really see a benefit from this page in building a network.
Well done to the @BuzzBuzzHome team!
