On October 23rd, 2009, Facebook pushed two minor changes in terms of the layout and design of the site. One of these changes included new suggestions in the Suggestions box on the right hand side the News Feed. The other change was a link at the top of the News Feed (A.K.A. Home Page) titled "Live Feed".
I've been using Facebook since I was in high school (about 3 years at the time of this post). I recall three changes to the site, not including this recent one. The first change was absolutely horrible and I hated it. The second change brought in a plethora of new features and really wasn't that bad. I couldn't understand why people complained. The third took away all of the features I liked, tried to mimic Twitter at the same time, and was horribly broken for weeks. For each change, I left feedback for Facebook. Some good, some bad.
Now, if memory serves me correctly, Facebook introduced a Live Feed tab during the second change to the Facebook layout/design. It was taken out when the third change was pushed out, which upset me greatly. It was one of the coolest features Facebook had to offer and thousands of people were bitching when it was removed.
So, let's fast forward to today. Facebook has brought back the Live Feed "in response to feedback". Wonderful. This is a great thing. The layout hasn't changed at all and we have the Live Feed back and some additional changes to Suggestions. Unfortunately, there's a small problem.
PEOPLE ARE COMPLAINING!
It's all over the place. In status messages and groups. Groups like "Facebook: SWITCH BACK TO THE OLD NEWS FEED!!!". Newsflash. You can. All you have to do is click the link at the top of your News Feed that says "News Feed". It switches you out of your Live Feed and back into your News Feed.
Seriously people, how stupid can you get? The News Feed hasn't changed. It's still the same. Please stop bitching. Otherwise, quit and go to Myspace.
