Heh, so who on Facebook's annoyed with the new status update display? I think my recent/top stories just exploded.

I responded to the layout change this time by posting my Google+ profile.

Heh, I don't think I'll get one of those any time soon. My boyfriend got one really early on, and he's on Facebook far more.

I'm not a die-hard Facebook user or anything, but it's useful for keeping up with more people.

You can get rid off all the annoying changes by setting your language to "English (UK)." Sure, everything is in British English, but at least your Facebook page will be more familiar.

I got Google+ early on as well... and don't use it. It's kind of lame.

Yeah, that's what I've heard. I haven't been tempted to get one, but a friend of mine has been trying to get people over there since he hates FB so damn much. Who knows? This might spark interest in G+.

EDIT: I switched to UK English, and it's so much better. Thanks, Belial.

Now we wait and see how long we get to use it before Facebook changes it all.

Facebook has been extremely glitch-ridden for me for the past month or so on TOP of the annoying changes to the recent/top stories fiasco.

I was stoic about not making a Google+ profile... but I caved in 10 minutes. Really easy to set up and I'm actually liking it far more than Facebook, to be honest.

No fucking kidding. A couple weeks back or so I made a post about being shy and only the first comments posted. For some reason for a day and a half people's comments were not getting posted onto my Facebook, be it for status updates, photos, etc. Like you could see it when you posted it, but if you reloaded the page, the comment was gone. All of the people who put up comments after that initial person FREAKED THE FUCK OUT about their comments not appearing thinking I was deleting them.

I'm in the middle of lunch somewhere and one of the friends calls my boyfriend to tell him that she's de-friended me since I'm apparently not interested in communicating with her any more.

I CANNOT believe how serious Facebook has become in our lives.

Or social networking in general! I absolutely hate Facebook, yet I'm on it more than any other site!

that's why I don't use it. I don't like how for so many people it seems to have completely supplanted actual communication.

I have an account, I just don't ever use it.

Changes with Chat in Google+
We wanted to offer you more control over who you can chat with in Google Plus. So we've made a change that requires you to explicitly invite people in order for them to appear in your chat list.

Indeed! Are you listening, Facebook?

So the UK English loophole didn't last long. D'oh.

I can't even tell what's new any more.

Yeah, I switched over to the UK English and the only thing that changed was the right-hand column... which was one of the changes from the last round of "updates" that I didn't care for either... but at least it didn't fuck with shit.

What pisses me off is that I posted about the change yesterday and a few people laughed at me, thinking it was the old ass update. Now that they got hit with the changes, they are all raging, and no "I'm sorry".

... not like they could find the post to comment on to say sorry anyway though.

But yeah, when the little box came up talking about the updates, I clicked "leave feedback" and told them I fucking hated it and wanted the old layout back. I think that we should all flood the feedback box with messages of just how much we hate this thing.

Otherwise, I'm on Google+ as well.

Give it time and Google+ will be crap too.

Some of you guys have me on FB and you can see how much I use it... hardly ever. As for the recent update, I think I somehow turned it off because I don't see it anymore.

I never got into xanga, myspace, or FB that much at all. More of a forums guy I guess.

Yeah, I'm really sad about the Facebook change. It's really confusing and hard to tell what's new with whom! Google+ is looking less lame every day. I am there! I am adding friends as I see them!

Apparently Google+ went public yesterday. Interesting...

I might just wander over there later today.

Okay seriously can one of you maybe take screenshots? I think I know what you guys are talking about, but I only saw this one day like last week or something. I dunno if I somehow disabled it or what, lol. Not that I'm complaining, but everyone on my friends list is, including old family members which is just damn hilarious to me.

OK, this is what the rest of us are seeing:


The feed in the center is what Facebook thinks we'll find interesting, as opposed to just showing the most recent updates and such. It marks off these Top Stories with a blue triangle in the lefthand corner.

Also there's this ticker-like feed on the right and scrolls down with you as you scroll through the page. The ticker tells you what people have clicked that they like, what they commented onto other people pages, and so on.

I haven't heard anyone say they like any of these implemented changes.

Way to go, Mark Zuckerberg. If TheSocial Network didn't kill you, this might.

I remember the ticker that one day I saw it, annoyed the hell out of me.

I seriously don't know what I've done though, but yeah. No changes to my account... this is still what I see normally:


The new "reviews" thing is annoying as hell to me though and I am seeing that. I gotta "review" to make sure, yes I went to my high school with X friend, yes X person is family and what the relation is, holy shit leave me alone. lol

So close to taking FB off my quicklinks. When that happens, I am too lazy to type URL's so I'd stop going completely.

This update is REALLY shitty. I mean, it's a bitch to navigate in terms of trying to just read the latest and not stuff that's 12 hours old first because they think you might be interested.

The Oatmeal cut out a piece of a comic they did on Facebook from a State of the Web comic he previously did and has been flashing it around to make fun of the people pissed off: Link

I mean, it was funny regarding the past updates where they mostly just changed the look, and yeah, people only really complained for a day. This update, however, has people still pissed off, including those who apparently were getting the new layout over the last few days.

I wish my account had no changes. Lucky bastard, Xeo.
