Dammit Facebook!

Here we go again with more facebook changes.  In a nutshell, who cares.  Is it really going to affect your life in any way?  Did the changes make your teeth fall out?  I find it amusing how many people are going absolutely postal over the new look.  Some folks are acting as if someone broke into their house and rearranged the furniture.  I've seen everything from "I hate facebook" to "I'm leaving for Google+!"  What's next?  "Crucify Zuckerberg?"

Yeah, I like to poke a little fun at facebook for all the changes but protests and threats?  Do you really think facebook is going to reverse the changes because you threatened to drop your account?  I have to laugh at how powerful we think we've become on social networking sites.  It's too easy to get sucked in like a good video game or movie.  Some folks threaten to "unfriend" people as if they were hereby appointed "Facebook Pharoh" by the people.  Facebook is a FREE social networking site.  They don't owe us anything.

Couldn't agree more, Terry. But what a great testament to FB! Most businesses would love for their customers to have such a feeling of "ownership". When people feel so connected, you truly have something special with your customers. Of course, this can really bite you if you're not careful, but that's a different discussion. :)
