Some writers make the terrible mistake of sending their manuscript off to an agent or publishing house long before it is truly ready to be seen. The same goes for the new Facebook changes—they are a terrible mistake, IMHO. It’s not so much that the thoughts behind the changes were bad, it’s that not enough prep work was done to make sure that the changes would flow seamlessly with the old template.

Nobody likes change. Sometimes understanding can calm me us down. Ok, so it didn’t work for me, but perhaps these links to the reasons behind the changes will help you.

Six Years of Making Connections

Tonight we’ll host a celebration at Facebook headquarters, and we’ll release a handful of new things that will improve people’s Facebook experience, including a couple that people have requested a lot.

Introducing Your New Navigation

We hope the simplified design of the home page will make it easy for you to stay connected with the people, applications and activities that matter the most to you.

Faster, Simpler Photo Uploads

Our goal with this upgrade is to give you a fast, stable and simple experience for sharing photos on Facebook with your friends.

I’ve decided to visit Facebook over the next few days with no expectations of seeing anything I like. I know that the developers are working hard to fix all the bugs because I read about it here. I’m going to give them a little grace, a little time, and then see what I think once all the problems have been rectified.

About twice a year I come up with great ideas and implement them. I don’t always have the best results, either.

P.S. Some people have found that if they click on their friends list (in the left column) and hit the status bar, they can see more timely updates.



Every piece of writing needs to be clear and precise. With microscope in hand, Inksnatcher’s writing and editing service will hone any work until it glitters in the light of a 1,000 watt bulb.
