For those who have Facebook accounts, what do you think of the new changes made by the administration? I am personally frustrated by how everything is being posted in Facebook. "Blah blah is now friends with blah, blah, and blah". I certainly don't need to know a few things such as "Blah joined the group blah blah". Everything is sooo confusing. The feed is just too jammed if you ask me. Talk about too much traffic. I can't stand it. GIVE ME THE OLD FACEBOOK! So, what do you think? Do you like the changes? Or not?

LOL .. I like it when you said blah2x now friends with blah2x...classic! I know what you mean, ha... Sometimes I'm looking for game notifications, like wanting to help friends to fight this and that, and when I saw some unnecessary notices like that, I have to keep the arrow down, look for that gaming thingy. I must say; can be quite frustrating, but I'm a pretty quiet game user, so I just do my own thing, and then log out.

Hi there zed (again) hahaha As for the blah blah thingies, I didn't mean to sound rude or anything but I think it's totally unnecessary to post them. Not that I don't like my friends or anything, but come to think of it, I have a lot of "friends" that aren't really friends at all. This reminds me, I should delete them. Is it okay to delete "friends"? Hahaha

I know, right?? It's just so frustrating to see that everything's a mess. I can't see the point why the administration had to make changes as drastic as that. When I opened my account, I was like, "What the hell??!" Boo. Bring the old FAcebook back!

Hi, I can't notice what is the big changes there. But I can see from the sidebar I have lost a column where my friends post new photo I will get to see that. Now that this side bar column is blank. If you really want the old Facebook you may try to contact Facebook admin. Voice out your opinion so they get to know the feedback from us. I am sure they wouldn't change for no reason.

yeah all the posts about who joined what, or who did what is a little too much. that's what twitter is for. but facebook just sucks. the old and the new one. you can't do anything on facebook, but play stupid games. its like email, with games. I have no idea how its so popular, maybe its just a simple site for stupid people. muahahhahaha yeah i said it. facebook is like the aol of social networking (it sucks). p.s. join http://www.iheartfriendz.com

Okay. So are you saying that I am one of those stupid people? Right. I actually like Facebook because it's interactive. That's where I usually chat with my sister and my brother who work abroad.

No. I'm saying maybe you're on the wrong site. Facebook is interactive like email is interactive. lol

Facebook has change there layout and everything? I haven't logged in to my account for days now. I'll be checking it later. Thanks for pointing it out. I may not be an avid facebooker but still I can say if many people in facebook didn't like the changes then it is not a good move at all for the facebook admins.

The live and news feeds are different. Everything's seems botched up! The changes are too confusing for many of us. For the first time in weeks, I logged on to some of the games that I used to play just for the sake of not seeing the spiteful feed.

If you feel it to be that boring, do one thing. Redirect your all friends from facebook to myLot. This change may feel good. Tell them all to land up at myLot. Thank you.

I tried before, but they seem to turn a deaf ear to MyLot. Yeaaahhh I pretty much suck at convincing? Hahahha. I'm waiting for the right moment yet again.

Hi aixshaonline! Yeah me too! I find it annoying already. Like when they placed some kind of an alert in their "suggestions" widget that says something like "Reconnect with blahblah" or "Blahblah only has 10 friends, suggest more people that he knows" or "Blahblah needs a profile picture, suggest a picture for him". It's so annoying! And like, where the heck is the "highlights" widget???? Did they remove it? That's where I usually look if I'd want to know what's goin on coz the news feed is just so "over crowded", and now they removed it!

I freaking despise it! I don't care who made friends with who or joined what group or scratched their butt! Now I can't find ANY of the good stuff I actually WANT to see from my freinds because it's buried under all that CRAP! I've joined like 4 groups there protesting the new idiocy.

there is this thread message or something and i don't think i personally have anything to do with it and am wondering why am being notified in emails. duh?! i don't hate facebook though. i just think that they're sort of really trying to survive the test of time by updating or even innovating. i don't think the changes are useful however...

I like the changes my friend and don't hate facebook in that matter. Facebook is one of the best social networking sites that we can connect with friend, promote our business,play games, and most especially we can earn....have a nice day!

I don't think so. Well anyway, i don't know what the old facebook looks like because i just recently joined this. I really liked it and i'm really in for the games specially farm town and mafia wars. They're really cool. I spent a lot of time here...

hello aixshaonline, Frankly, I never liked face-book. I've only joined there because of the recent events that happened in mylot that made feel like in a black hole with out any contact with other people. I never knew the old face book because it was only this few months when i joined there. i didn't even noticed the changes

this is actuallt "the new facebook that came right after the not even yet so old version" lol or something like that, meaning they had just made enough changes and we surely didn't need anymore changes since some people still have to get used to it. I hate the entire feed thing and anyway, the graphic sucks which is something they'd need to improve, instead of letting me know that my old schoolmate is now a fan of sleeping late and such stuff eheh

I like the changes as it keeps you updated about your all contacts. Otherwise it will be difficult to keep track of your contacts, what are they doing and what are their current interests. And then if someone does not like it.. the facebook gives you a way to disable them.. so it is ultimately the users' choice to see it or not.

I don't really mind those updates. And you can always ignore the messages and invites. I just visit Facebook to play games and read the updates made by friends. Otherwise, I ignore everything else.

I share the same opinion as you. I was a bit lost at first and I thought there was something wrong with my facebook. Anyway, it was really unnecessary not really helpful. I wish they would return it to the old one.

I hate the new Facebook feed too. I said that before with the new change but THIS recent one is a lot more confusing and whole lot more "littered" than ever. I don't like it one bit. :| It's too "stalkery-ish" and too public. I prefer the old one.
