Crap. My opinion.

I do like the banner thing at the top, but that's about it.

I'm seriously thinking of leaving Facebook for good and going to live on that Island that Marlon Brando left me.

He just told me to watch out for Hairy Women.

Don't know what he meant?

Can't stand companies that constantly change something that is simple and works, just to keep their employees busy.

Apple made it's original IMOVIE upgrades into a total horror. I've always stuck with the original on that.

CHANGE for the sake of CHANGE is not always GOOD, is it?

BASSTARDS!

Now the facebook team is running amok.

FACEBOOK IS DAMIEN REBORN AND IT'S THE END OF THE WORLD!

Cue Diego Navarro!

I'm avoiding the Timeline untill I'm forced to implement it. It seems totally ridiculous. I also think the current version was a step back from the one immediately preceding it, which was actually very good (where you could sort the news feed by 'just status updates', for example).

Me, too. I've been dreading it, but so far it seems the mandatory conversion has only happened to 'pages,' not personal profiles (see below). Many folk I know have voluntarily adopted the new look, and I go cross-eyed trying to make sense of their profiles if ever I stray there. Not a fan.

Facebook rolls out mandatory Timeline for brand Pages, not profiles

I was totally against the timeline when it was first unveiled, but once I switched to it, I was fine with it. The only thing I don't like is that now Friend's favorite things like shows, movies, books, etc. are more "hidden" and not displayed on their main page anymore. But other than that, I really don't mind it. I thought I'd hate it, but once I got it, it didn't bug me at all.

I went to it, the second it was introduced. I love it. The only change Facebook ever made, I like.

Did someone open a discussion thread to complain about Facebook's user interface?

What, did we run out of dan the man threads or something? Is there a a drought on "Best Of A Decade" ideas or did we just need something to fill in between Thor's Little Ponies and Pound Puppies petitions?

I don't understand why people complain about something that is free and they don't have to use.

Another thing is that people also seem to dislike the idea of chance, whether it's good or bad.

Often, after an update, they get used to it and lament it when the update they previously opposed to is being changed.

It isn't quite as easy as that. Facebook (and other social media) have become an integral part of our social life. For me, it's been a gateway to jobs, dates and events that I would otherwise not have had access to. So it's an ESSENTIAL part of my life. I think that just because something is free, doesn't mean one can't point out things one finds lacking.

This board is free too, but we should still be allowed to point out things that could be improved in terms of interface etc. It's just a matter of airing one's preference, not a DEMAND for anything.

I like it just fine. It's cool to have the banner/cover photo at the top (mine is a "spot the easily found Benny" picture). It arranges things in two columns which is fine with me. I do kind of like the timeline thingie on the right that can cover your entire life if you so desire, but it does require some time to set it up properly so that could be a hassle for many people to mess with. I like to tinker with things so it was OK for me!

Yours. My social life hasn't changed. It's just as lame as before. :-)

Interesting how people use it differently. Me, I use it for laffs or to just see what people are up to. Or to promote whatever play I'm in. But generally, I could delete the whole thing and not really see my life change in any big way. It's fun for me, but far from essential.

My brother in law wouldn't go near it if you paid him.

I noticed someone in the comments section mentioning this Timeline thing so I posted this, but really, I have no idea what it is.

I have started using Facebook a LITTLE this past week, and it's only because I'm in a situation where I am spending a few hours with little to do. If history tells us anything it's that once I start using a technological thingee its demise is imminent. I didn't think of this until I read the comments to this article, and saw the money involved in FB. I mean, something valued at that amount has to have more to it than this, and it will only take the next Facebook to sink this thing in a few months, I would imagine. But who knows, and I don't care enough to invest that much thought in it. In a month I'll be back to not using it no doubt.

P.S. I'm not hung up on "Facebook is evil" or anything (though I think the Zuckerberg guy is full of shit), if people want to use it and enjoy it, God bless, if the guy makes zillions, ditto. I get pissed about some things in this world, but this is just...a bit befuddling. I don't see why it's such a big deal to people. It's kinda boring, and definitely a waste of time--nothing of substance, just trivia.

I've deactivated my account over the past week - just not getting enough out of it for the time spent.

A happy coincidence!
