      What are your thoughts on the facebook changes?

      I myself was shocked to see how much they had changed Facebook last week and wasn't keen on it to be honest, I have now managed to get some of the changes back to normal but I know that will not last. I was reading the changes that where announced at the conference about the Facebook changes and Mark Zuckerberg has announced that in the next few weeks they will be rolling out new profile changes that will completely change the layout of the profiles and also provide a timeline on your profiles which can be used as a timeline from when you was a baby until now.

      They are also phasing out the like button and now it will be that everything and anything can be shared automatically without having to press a like button from the movies you are watching to the music you are listening to.

      What are your thoughts on this?

      I like some of the changes and I don't like the others. My thing with Facebook is that I use it to keep in touch with friends and family. That's it. So I will continue to use it unless they charge for it. I hate when people complain about all the changes though. If you don't like it, don't use it!

      I didn't like the changes and fiddled a bit and got it sort of back how I wanted it.
      I've noticed tonight that Zynga have now placed some of their games with Google+ so I'm gonna have a play and compare :)

      Really I didn't notice that mainly because I am usually on with my phone so don't see the games. Going to have a peek now :)

      I am not aware of the recent changes and so I find it bit odd to navigate around the site. I also see some changes not necessary and seems like just a "new thing" about the site to be said it was developing. I just do hope I could appreciate it more since it is for free.

      When I first saw the changes I franticly tried to change it back somehow, but it's kinda grown on me now. I'm still not really keen on the fact that your most recent posts aren't at the top of the page.

      No I am the same, I still find myself getting confused with the posts at the top of the page on my phone now thinking they are most recent and yet they end up being an hour old or so. I have got used to it somewhat but I am still finding I still have things showing to non friends now aswell that I really didn't want to so I am having to constantly go around and make changes to settings which is a pain.

      They have changed it a lot and I dont like it, however, as it is with anything that has changed drastically I will get used to it over time.

      I'm not happy with the new changes either but it's not like there's anything we can do about it. I am pretty much used to it by now anyway. Just wait until they come out with the new timeline.
