Some time back, Facebook made the new “timeline” profile available to users. People did not seem to enthuse over the new profile, and the majority of users never migrated to Facebook’s newest version of the Edsel. Here is a link to a JPG file with a diagram to help you understand. Feel better now? It doesn’t matter.
Demonstrating its usual sensitivity to customer satisfaction, Facebook decided to cram the new timeline profile down everyone’s throats whether they like it or not.
The migration is under way, and if you notice your Facebook profile or page suddenly seems to look different, stupid, or just plain wrong, this is why.
It may be that the new Facebook has wonderful features that were not available in the older version. Likely, these are features some of us will never use. It does not matter, though because you are getting it whether you want it or not. They are Facebook. Who the hell are you? You’re nobody. What are you going to do about it—change over to Google Plus? BWHAHAHA! Good luck with that. Hope you have fun connecting with the other ten users over there.
This kind of thing will continue until a new platform comes along that threatens Facebook’s supremacy, or until Facebook has finally improved itself to death. In the mean time, just sit back and enjoy the chaos. If you grow weary of Facebook, and don’t know what to do with your excess social media time, try hanging out here at Indies Unlimited.
