Facebook Makes Extreme Changes
Facebook has recently changed the way their site works entirely. Now that they have to compete with sites such as Twitter and Google plus, they need to constantly update their site to keep people interested. They completely changed the way the privacy settings work. Now, people can choose who they want to share what with, which will probably cause people to gravitate to Facebook instead of other sites, because it is in the consumer's own self interest to control who sees what they do. However, some changes like the timeline are looked down upon by some customers. Some people don't want to see everything their friends are doing at the exact moment they are doing it. If Facebook would make getting rid of the timeline an option for customers, more people might want to use Facebook. Facebook makes changes all the time to keep up with the competition in the social networking industry, however, this time they may have gone too far for some of the technologically challenged people out there.
