Facebook Home Page

I’m not going to be the first and I won’t be the last to write about this, so I won’t labour the point. Hopefully the graphic says it all. The new Facebook home page seems to be trying to be more like Twitter than actually bringing prople together, which it was previously very good at. With the posted items and “ancillary” activity being demoted to the right column, I am now no longer as immersed in what my friends are posting, doing or playing. Some of my friends posted articles of interest, which allowed me to comment there and then. Now I only see abbreviations. The core area is now trying to be a Twitter copy, being filled with everyone’s status updates … oh, sorry “whatever is on their mind”.

Verdict: Meh.
