    Honestly I like how facebook was in 2005-2006 before they did the first redesign of it.

    I liked it too, it was very simple, but now facebook is asking for too many things!!

    It's a privacy issue.... lol :rolleyes:

    Tried it, could care less... privacy, well, it's always a crap shot.

    Pretty much the same thing, just in different places. Gets a MEH from me.

    I really wish Facebook would stop trying to be an all in one shop. I don't want everything in one place and I don't want everyone knowing every part of my business.

    The last 3 major updates which are homepage, chat, and now profile, it's unnecessary. Just more pics and smaller font.

    Yeah, the brilliance of Facebook was always it's basic simplicity. There have been some great features added, but it's also just getting too big and bloated. It's what made MySpace cave...every started to look like the Vegas strip with the amount of blinking and pictures everywhere.

    I also hate how you can no longer just write out a paragraph about activities, bands, TV shows, etc. on your profile...you have to "like" them...then start getting posts from them. It also takes away me being able to write smartass and snarky comments about stuff I like.

    Fail. The link to upgrade hasn't appeared for me yet. I check FB on my phone 90% of the time anyway, but I am interested to see how it looks.

    Yawn. I stopped using facebook two weeks ago. It just got boring and pointless.

    It's a bit messy in my opinion but at least it's opt-in for the time being. I think they make everything forced in terms of visual/appearance changes so they can keep it looking the same throughout the site.
