Just some ramblings and opinions about Facebook today.
Facebook has risen to the top of social networking, becoming ubiquitous in society to where it's mentioned in daily conversations and business transactions. Facebook doesn't seem to have significant invest interest in its user base as to what features are useful or not, or just plain unwanted. Not until people start blogging really loudly and when the media begins amplifying those complaints.
The "Facebook Feedback" page seems perfunctory, at best.
In recent times, we saw a plugin for Firefox called "F. B. Purity" which allows the user to customize his/her Facebook experience on the web, including behaviors with scripts. Facebook was not happy, apparently intimating they might sue the author (its status currently unknown to me).
So, they care if you mess with their mess.
The development of mobile and web is continually in a feature incomplete state, changes appear without warning, creating a confusing and inconsistent experience. I wonder about their internal release engineering process (if in fact they have one). In the various companies I've worked at, you don't just randomly force changes onto your customer - it's a bad practice - you have a beta test site, you solicit and use (and care about) user feedback.
Since nobody else has the footprint that FB has (currently, anyway), they must feel justified in a haphazard release process. I imagine they could care less about whether or not you like it. Whether comments work to your liking or not. That has been fairly clear for some time.
I agree with some posters in that once you become a member of FB, along with your friends and family, it's already taken hold and you can't just leave -- the consequences are dire. Unfortunately. And I can't stand twitter! :-)
