- What the h3ll is happening to Facebook profiles?
Anyway, back to my original gripe. I have always embraced change but in my humble opinion, change should be triggered by reason and function. This profile thing may have some tech-y reason but it does not help me, the FB user...at...all.
How do I let my FB friends know how I feel? Are they only supposed to randomly discover this via the News Feed? I don't know about the rest of you but I know my loyal and conscientious FBer's go to their friends' walls to check statuses and to post random and / or uplifting comments. But now, when they arrive at my wall, can they just glance at the top to check my current emotional or mental state (i.e. my status?) Nope, not if my profile has been updated they can't.
If I wish to show my support for a worthy cause by posting something on my status for a specified amount of time, will it show at the top of my wall as a moral flagship waving in the virtual wind...not if my profile has been updated.
And then, to rub salt in the wound, the new and "improved" profile also lists your most recent photos along the top. Well guess what Facebook? Not all of us are proud of every photo posted and maybe, just maybe, that photo I posted from my office Christmas party (with my skirt tucked into the back of my pantyhose while doing the marcarena) wasn't something I wanted streaming on the top of my wall. Did you ever think of that?
If this is the result of change, get me a horse and buggy. I will do my social networking though the Pony Express!
side note: I have no idea how to spell marcarena and spellchecker wanted to change it to macaroni so I apologize if it is misspelled.
