Yesterday evening I signed onto Facebook to notice that there have been changes to the format once again. Please, someone tell me why they keep changing things there that don’t need changing.
The most immediate change I noticed was moving the options for doing things at the top of the site to the right rather than keeping them to the left. Since we here in America read left to right, I can’t say I was happy with that.
Next I noticed that the little image thing we used to see at the bottom left that took us to applications we wanted is now gone. It hasn’t been replaced, which is irritating as well. Now, to get into any applications, you always have to go back to the home page, where you have a menu to the left that I haven’t quite figured out yet how to modify so I can see the apps that I go to the most often.
Also, I tried to tag a couple of photos last night, which used to be a very easy process, and had problems doing that as well. First it wanted me to add a new application, which I turned down. Then when I was finally in the images section, I would select the tag tool, but whenever I clicked on the picture it would leave. Man, stuff just didn’t want to work with me last night.
All in all, I’m drastically not impressed with any of the new changes, and can’t wait until someone figures out how to change things through UserScripts.org, which allows you to change things up on the Firefox browser, which I’ve talked about before. I’m never against change, but one hopes it makes things easier and better, not more convoluted.
What are your thoughts about it? By the way, you’re probably going to see Valentines Day products up until the day before Valentines Day, unless I write about something that has a specific product. I hope no one forgets about it; next Sunday folks!
