And how long until the subsequent class action lawsuit because they purposefully put the "Yes" button on the right (instead of the Western-typical left) so people would "accidentally" click the wrong button and buy?

Wouldn't Facebook need your credit-card information before this was a real problem?

I can see it now....
"Mommy! Mommy! I bought you special gift from your Facebook, because the site I play games on, with your always open browser, asked me to buy for you.

/And people thought Apple app buys were a problem.
//Log out of facebook and delete all those cookies before you surf and you being the product is no longer a problem. Or use 2 browsers at once for separation.

Lazy, Lazy, if its more than one click SCREW YOU!. I always stay logged in, so I get all those special offers too. The sites call me by name, they are definitely not lame. Next month its time to declare bankruptcy, So I can keep all the products. Lazy, Lazy, they gonna cut off my diabetes feet soon.

People who maintain that Facebook is nothing but drama and lame time wasting have obviously never maintained a Facebook with a group of mature sensible friends and relatives who just keep in touch, post pictures everyone wants to see, and share interesting articles. Works great when people live all over the world.

Of course this requires that you are not friends and relatives with idiots and that you can control yourself as well.

One click online shopping always seems iffy.

All it really requires is for people to stop adding every single person they meet like they're collecting baseball cards.

Problem is Facebook has a no nudity rule.

Honestly, part of me is convinced that basically every commerce site and app store reverses these buttons randomly for exactly that reason.

If the same UX people at Facebook are designing this, that designed the new top-bar changes, they're going to rake in the miskeyed one-click purchases.

Rule one: you put an element on the page, it stays where you put it. Stop jumping it around due to poor planning on the page-load sequence.

Sheesh.

We all know if Facebook lifted the nudity rule, it would follow the nude beach rule : lots of heavy old Germans.

Exactly. No need to worry.

When Amazon introduced one click checkout, they opted everyone in.  I was shopping for some used books, and instead of hitting add to cart, clicked the one click buy option.  It immediately sent my order through to the third party seller with the book, which in theory would have been fine, as I wanted the book for that price.  The problem was that it auto-selected an old address at some random house I lived in during college, but not for years.  Of course no amount of emails to amazon or the third party would cancel the order.  Since the house on campus isn't what I would call a secure environment for shipping, someone accepted the package, and I ended up paying for it.   Thankfully they have since added some ways to disable this wonderful feature, but I'm still bitter about paying for a book that I didn't receive.  At least it wasn't a text book.

Congratuations.

I'm sure you thought that when you left so would everyone else.

I regret to inform you that facebook has grown by approximately 100 million users since you left. Maybe that should tell you something.
