    When face book changed the first time, people were up in arms about that, now that it`s changed again people want it back that way....Can the internet agree on anything?

    I guess people can`t see the fact that these changes are better in the long run.

    A decent GUI delivers the needed information quickly and effectively. That is EXACTLY what the new layout/features does.
    Sure, it`s different...but I guess most people who complain know nothing of Human-Computer interaction, and the like.

    It`s really not that different. But then, I mostly use the Facebook app in my iPod Touch, and that hasn`t changed a bit, so I didn`t know the old Facebook terribly well.

    i don`t care all that much, but I do prefer the old layout. The new one gives away too much information. I liked being able to take a reaally cringey quiz then delete the app and no-one would know.

    I don`t mind when Facebook changes, but the only thing that irked me about this one is that they made it a 12 step process for me to get to my groups.

    I usually like to check those out every time I get on, the new layout made it a bit more inconvenient. But oh well, maybe they`ll put it back.

    @norris.for the very clever diss for facebook users. =)(fu*ktard)
    Things change and people complained like this about the last change, it didn`t make them put the old one back, so why complain really? The change is still there and they will probably change it again someday, get over it and learn how to use the new one.

    Did people not see the notice at the top of their FB before they made the change? FB actually told people the change is coming and showed an idea of what it was going to be like. I`m surprised these people are shocked, being the FB fans that they are. >>

    they received 30,000 emails. On one hand thats not a lot compared to how many people use the site...on the other hand, that`s 30,000 who actually cared enough, figured out how to and then WROTE an email to facebook complaining. In that respect, that`s a lot of people. That said, comments on this site can be split up into several groups.

    1) those who hate facebook...who get off on hating something popular

    2) those who dislike the change...and can`t handle change in their life

    3) those who surprised and disgusted by the fact people are complaining...really? seriously? you live on earth. People complain about everything. its not anything new. Yelling at them to get used to it is as productive as saying complaining about the change in the first place

    4) me...and i`m awesome

    I think it`s funny how so many people dislike it and call it confusing. Honestly, I don`t see much of a difference.

    I remember when YT changed and everyone had their panties in a twist, but they got used to it, as will the Facebook users.

    "I remember everyone complained when IAB changed the layout, many complained but after a week everyone got use to it."

    I still don`t like the "new" look here. I don`t read comments anymore unless they are one of the 5 or 6 on the front page. Half the time even those don`t make sense because it`s a reply to something that`s a page or two back.

    I am not crazy about the new FB but I`ll get used to it. Like I did here.

    i think that with all these unpopular changes that facebook has been making, we may see another networking site pop up sometime in the near future, one that is like the old facebook...

    i liked facebook better than myspace because it was sleeker and didn`t have all that crap people can put on their myspace...but now facebook is kinda like a watered down version of myspace...not as annoying, but the similarities are there

    it only tripped me up because when the change over happened, i had navagated away from the home page and came back to it being totally different, like with in a matter of min. I just went, "Oh!...Okay, let`s try to figure out where things are...again." I roll with change pretty easily.

    I still use facebook for contacting friends who are not on myspace, but I`m getting really fed up that they keep changing it. When myspace updated their profile layout and homepage layout, they gave their users an option as to if they wanted to continue using the old layout. We shouldn`t have to change if we don`t want to.

    I love watching everyone freak out every time anything changes. Does anyone else remember when it changed last time, just a few months ago? And how much everyone hated it? And how everyone got used to it in a few weeks? People will adjust, just like they always do. It`s better this way, anyway.

    3 Sides to this argument:

    1 - "I`m afraid of change, plus I`m too stupid to understand information if it isn`t organized in the format I`ve become used to."

    2 - "I hate facebook," (*checks facebook account*) it sucks." (*checks again*) Facebook is for losers (*pokes everyone from his graduating class - confused and saddened by the lack of response*)

    3 - (*Shrug*) "Who cares?"

    I fit in at 3. May I presume to express, on behalf of all who join me in my opinion, thanks to the rest of you. Your antics are entertaining in the exteme.

    I think the old facebook was better, it`s way too simple now. Now it`s just where is everything?

    Geez! This is considered news? The same thing happens anytime ANYTHING changes. There always a bunch of people who get all "up in arms" over it. It makes me kinda sad, really. At the rate technology changes if you can`t handle a change to a website, you cna expect to one day be the old person screaming at the ATM because you can`t figure out how these new fangled contraptions work.
