The new facepile menu seems to be missing a key feature: recent activity.
As someone working within a larger team, being able to hover over someone's avatar in the facepile to see how recently they viewed the Freehand is incredibly helpful. Whenever our team meets with stakeholders, at the outset of the meeting, we quickly check to see whether the stakeholder has reviewed our team's work. This way, we can avoid the incredibly awkward, "Did you have time to review the team's work or do we need to start from the beginning?"
It would be helpful to have the facepile display who most recently viewed the Freehand, rather than showing the first person to access the Freehand (which isn't very useful once you have a larger team). Also, the facepile menu should include all visitors instead of just the ones that aren't included in the facepile itself (with it split, one has to shift focus from the facepile to the facepile menu and then back again in order to account for the whole team).
