Who Moved My Facebook?
March 21, 2009 1 Comment
I must be the exception to the norm. I have yet to be phased by any of the changes that Facebook has made to their site. That’s not to say that I think all their changes have been needed or even warranted. It is the one site where I seem to just go with the flow.
There are enough people, however, each time change comes that get upset when someone moves their cheese. They create pages, groups, applications to announce their displeasure. Is this such a bad thing? At first I would have said yes but then I got to thinking. What better way to get feedback from your users?! Most web sites are lucky if someone takes the time to fill out a contact us form. Facebook fans take full advantage of Web 2.0. Maybe the rest of the web could take a page from Facebook and think of more ways to allow our users to express pleasure or displeasure.
I hardly see Facebook changing back (but you never know enough of an uproar might make a difference). It will be interesting to monitor this. I am one for change and don’t mind just going with the flow. All I ask is just don’t expect me to comment, start a group or create an application – unless it is “I Went With the Flow – Facebook Changes Don’t Phase Me” flair. 🙂
