I was warned last night by my husband that Facebook would look different today when I signed on. I even saw several news stories about the latest changes while working out at they gym this morning, so I thought I was prepared when I signed on today. I was wrong. These changes are just irritating.
Why do the clever minds at Facebook think I want to know every action of every person on my friends list in a constant stream? I was perfectly content with receiving notifications about my own posts and messages. I didn’t want or need a change. Why you think I care that Joey commented on Jenny’s post is beyond me. One would think that you would realize that one of the draws to Facebook is for people to DISCOVER conversations and interesting links and posts ON THEIR OWN. Facebook isn’t a Borg collective — users have minds of our own. I was happy finding the gems among my friends each day. Now Facebook’s a jumbled mess.
So please, Facebook people, STOP! Stop pretending that you know what I like. Stop tinkering for the sake of tinkering. And stop thinking you know what’s best for me.
