Many people are complaining about the new Facebook design. I am worried about it, but not because of the reasons most people are saying …
Actually the reason I am worried is because I like the change.
I like it because it brings Facebook more in line with Twitter.
Why is this a problem?
I’m worried I am going to have to seriously start using Facebook rather than dip in and out a couple of times a week!
- I might start using it more because I like it more, which takes up more time out of my week
- Facebook is evilly non-productive if you let it, what with all the applications, games and viral thingies
- If people think like me we might see even more people return or try the service, which adds to the draw
- More Facebook use means more activity, which means more spam
I already block every application that people invite me to or with. I leave groups that spam me. Still I struggle to make my Facebook time productive.
Don’t get me wrong, I like interacting, and even more now with the new design, but really I wish the new design was as bad as people were saying so I had a reason to close my account and never return! :)
Are you using Facebook more now?
