There ARE people still washing their hands of Facebook… so this kind of makes me believe that there either was enough account deletions for Facebook to care, or perhaps a light of common sense finally shined. I like to use Facebook. I will keep using it unless there is something extremely wrong ethically with their system that I cannot agree with.
Despite the fact Facebook is one of the largest websites, it is like when Yahoo! used to be top dog over ten years ago – you do something to piss off people that were loyal users, and you lose it. For those who want to jump the ship, fine, but for those who are not as rash – wait a bit.
This little tidbit of hope for redefining a user’s experience might actually happen. However, is it too late? I mean, hey, Facebook found the time to put in Leet Speak and English Pirate in their language options. I mean, if it was really important to focus on that rather than important user policies, I am not sure what kind of direction Facebook wants to go.
What are your thoughts?
