There was a moment, yesterday afternoon as I walked between meetings, that I thought one of two things had happened. Either some catastrophic event had wiped out all of my friends (although it would have had to have impacted both Utah and Troon which is a hell of a big spread) OR I had posted one controversal status update too many and been defriended by my entire network. The reason for either of these two theories ? Facebook status updates were deathly quiet.
Not for a minute did I think that the House of Zuckerberg would be tampering AGAIN with the Facebook format. Anyway 24 hours later I am still confused between “News Feeds” and “Live News Feeds” and for some reason I have to switch between the two to be sure that I am capturing all status updates.
Don’t get me wrong. There is nothing wrong with change and I concede that Facebook must always remain relevant but pissing off the very eyeballs (consuming and earning adults) that must be their most attractive demographic surely is counterproductive.
All I want from Facebook is some good games of Scrabble (read being annihilated by S & R), and some fun postings and updates.
It should not be hard work. When it becomes hard work I’ll go elsewhere. Are you listening Facebook ?
