We may think we’re okay with change, but really, who are we kidding?
When it comes to the internet, we like things to look the same. The biggest sites — Google, Yahoo, YouTube, Wikipedia — look about the same today as they did when they started.
But Facebook wants to stay fresh. It unveiled some alterations to its homepage yesterday, adding a real-time ticker of updates, and making some of the photos in the Newsfeed bigger.
Doesn’t seem like such a big deal — but it’s got Facebook users livid.
“I signed up for Google+ today,” said one.
Ridiculous, said another.
And TV host Joy Behar tweeted: “I’ve wasted so much valuable time trying to figure out the #NewFacebook, I’ve barely had time to play solitaire on my iPad.”
