Facebook has recently received backlash about its constant reformatting efforts. It’s always good for social media to stay current, but is too much change a problem? With Facebook’s constant changes of format and layout, users are left frustrated. Like anything new, Facebook’s changes take time for users to adjust. Many users, like myself, feel that Facebook should not be something that requires much practice or adaptation. Is this user frustration going to lead to an end for Facebook? Are users going to get tired of having to adjust to every reformat Facebook tries? Other social media, like Twitter and LinkedIn, barely ever change. A user who created an account years ago uses these sites the same way today. Should Facebook quit while it’s ahead? Or is change what keeps it exciting to users?
Attached is an entertaining video poking fun at the confusion and frustration Facebook users experience when facing changes on their Facebook pages. Let me know what you think!
