Dear Facebook, Stop It with the Changes
I was on Facebook last night and refreshed my page. I walked away and came back and saw my newsfeeds were hella different looking. Facebook has earned yet another sternly-worded letter.
Dear Facebook, STOP IT!
You do this EVERY TIME! Every. single. time. You make a huge change, we complain and then get used to it. Then when we settle into that change, you go and do a massive overhaul and have us re-learning your website. And like the robots you’ve turned us all into, we stay and go “Sir, yes sir.” We’re all part of the problem.
Y’all just changed how messages appeared like last month. And then offered folks to have FB email addresses. O_O I’ll be dambed if I’m telling folks to email me at firstname.lastname@example.org. That ain’t my portion! No thanks. Now you’ve made this big change to newsfeeds and the homepage. The right sidebar now scrolls with instant updates from friends. I don’t even know where to look. This redesign is a site for people with ADD. I’m over here looking like a junkie because my eyes keep running everywhere on the website. WHERE CAN I FOCUS?!?
I really wish I could quit you, Facebook. Times like this, I realize my dependence on this social network. My fan page is there, which has to be connected to a personal page. Years of pictures and comments are there. Friends and acquaintances who I’d like to keep up with but don’t have any other form of contact with them… I admit my dependence and I’m kinda mad about it. I WANT TO LEAVE! But they got me chained up.
You stay doing the most. I know you’re trying to compete with Google+ now. Your envy is showing. Kindly tuck it in. Google+ got you nervous. But these changes are what will chase more folks away. I know you’re #1 and unfuckwitable but ummm… I spend less and less time in Facebook now and this shall continue.
This is why I spend most of my time on Twitter and Tumblr. Well, I hate New Twitter too so that’s a different story for another day. Either way… Stop it. Let us be great and stop doing THE MOST with the least!
I’m bout sick of you and your new features. Tell your developers to go take a nap! Dang!
Yours in Hmphing,
Have you seen the newest Facebook change? Do you like it? Tell a G.
