|Me if I wasn't 41 years old and 30 lbs overweight|
Once again the look of facebook is going to change. I don't dread the change so much as I do the incessant bitching that will follow from users.
Today I made the switch to the new Timeline layout, or whatever you call it. I think everyone will be switched over on December 22nd. This gives people time to learn how to use it before the switch, but of course there will be those who couldn't find their face if it wasn't attached. Those people will complain the loudest and act like they never knew this was coming.
You still have control over what people see. Despite that some knuckle dragger will no doubt post "Facebook is now sharing all of your private information!"
Personally I like it for the most part. I love the new cover photo, which makes sense because I'm a total photo whore. The layout doesn't bother me either.
What does bug me is all these apps that you can add. You can add a hulu app so everyone knows what you are watching. Awkward if you are a 35 year old straight man who loves The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills.
There is an app that will update your running times, distances and show a map of where you run. I don't want people knowing my jogging route. Not that I have one, but if I did I sure as hell wouldn't want every mugger in town to know it.
Though timeline looks good to me, these additional apps will only make it easier for the FBI to find, or build a case against you. For that reason Mark Zuckerberg needs a spanking.
