It's like they take that whole "innovate or die" thing seriously

unlikely: It's like they take that whole "innovate or die" thing seriously


I think it's also that they feel like they have to keep farking with it in order to justify their paychecks.

Sounds like it will look like Myspace

Hopefully they will have implemented a better system for people to post passive aggressive updates and pictures that are aimed at unspecified people.

/Seriously, we get it. You're boyfriend lied to you at some point in time. Either kick him to the curb or stop being such a drama queen

I hate developers who update just for the sake of updating..

I think we need to make forks have 5 prongs instead of 4.
Volume knobs should go counterclockwise for increasing volume.
Dr. Pepper should be renamed Pepper, MD.

I only applaud this because a single column is what the timeline should have been from the beginning.. then no one would have been complaining. the whole two-column format is just annoying and scattered looking, breaking up the chronology of your updates.

regardless, does anyone really care? those of us with facebook are connected to friends, family, classmates, and coworkers to passively/actively stay up-to-date in each others lives. a running wall of updates on our profiles isn't nearly as important for that as the newsfeed on the home page which lumps everyone's together for your convenience. if you want more info than that and go to someone's profile, it's usually not to look at their wall as much as it is to look at pictures, links, or whatever got your attention from the newsfeed.

So, Dr. Thunder would be renamed Pepper, DO?

I'd still be active if Facebook was as it was circa 2009.

I check facebook on my Windows Phone™ 9 times out of 10 anyway, so whoppty-doo.

Block their updates or kick their ass to the curb (ie. de-friend).

I keep my list of friends on facebook pretty short, as in basically the ones I actually communicate with regularly. What's the point of having whoever on your friends list if you haven't actually conversed since high school 15 years ago? I couldn't care less about their kids or cheating spouses nor do I care about how well their farm or whatnot is doing.

If it wasn't for Facebook I might not have realized at least three acquaintances have gone crazy in the last few months. It's like an early warning system.

Pro tip: An over 40, unmarried woman is a potential Facebook powder keg.

FACEBOOK HAS NO RIGHT TO DO THIS TO OUR PAGES!!!

From their description, it sounds like an improvement.

I've never understood this obsessive need to constantly change things. It's one thing to fix things that don't work properly or to make things work better/faster, but rolling out a new format every six months, be it Facebook or any other site, just makes me want to use that site less. Especially when most of these "updates" do little more than shuffle most of the features around so that you have to spend 5 hours trying to figure out where they are and what they're called now.

The last time I went on Facebook all I saw posted was an endless stream of utter wank to wade through. I scrolled down just far enough to see a photograph of the dinner someone was served in a restaurant and went straight for the section to delete my account.

You can't delete your account anymore. You can "disable" it, but once disabled you still show up on lists, can still be added to groups and events and can still receive messages. That's leaving Facebook.

Hours of entertainment unfriending people I didn't like in person years ago.

And I will once again eat up the irony when people will biatch and moan about how they want the current version back when a few months ago they were biatching about how terrible the current version was. Then after a month the biatching will stop after they learn how it works. repeat ad-nauseum.

Are you serious? I 'deactivated' my account a few weeks ago. Since I didn't make a dramatic proclamation of my leaving, I've received a few inquiries of "where ARE you?!!" Um, I'm right here. In real life. I'm going to be pissed if I find out "I'm"still being added to mindless groups.

That's the business world we're in now, whether it's code or food. It's not enough to do something well consistently.  Everyone needs to keep aggressively dicking around with shiat to come up with something "new" all the time. Most will fail, and only a tiny few will hit it big, but not dicking around is as bad as quitting.

That's what the page said. There might be some sort of notification, I'm not sure. To be honest I stopped using mine several months back and on the occasions I've gone back to look no one appears to have noticed.
