OMG! They Changed Facebook!

It's like being surprised by the sun rising every morning. 

Normally, I'm not a huge fan of the changes, mostly because I've only just got used to the old new and it's always a bit of a hassle to have to go through all your privacy & account settings to make sure nothing's been changed by someone other than you, and to try to figure all the new stuff out. But, we get used to it. Every single time we get used to it. For once, I wish Facebook would change back to how it was just to see if people complained just as much as when it changed to what it is - if you see what I mean.

Anyway! This time, I am a fan of the changes. I love the ticker tape, I love the new lists, I love that I don't have to go to profiles every time I want to comment on something or write the obligatory 'happy birthday!', and I'm not bothered one bit by the new News Feed. 

The more I use Facebook, the more my feed looks like the old feed - the most recent posts are first. It's a smart move to make you use Facebook more. I've simply gone through my friends, made lists (which is extremely easy to do) and bingo - my feed shows me what I want. 

For once, I can't figure out why everyone's complaining. Mind you, it's probably far too early to be writing this given that today, as far as we know, Facebook will announce even more changes. I, for one, am excited. 

That was all. Just had to get it out.
