Facebook stock dips 17%, and I'm getting the hell out

So about 5 minutes ago i was reading a New York times online report about Facebook's IPO dropping 17% last weekend. As I was reading that and ironically on Facebook, I clicked the refresh button (and if any of you are familiar with Facebook's new timeline layout you'll know how crappy it is) and my freaking layout changed on it's own!!! I HAVE HAD IT! Facebook and me have officially broken up ... NFF is now my new official home and I hope it stays that way for the foreseeable future Anyone on the screw Facebook bandwagon and whats your reasoning? If your for Facebook, then why?

I got a Facebook because it was required by my Calculus Teacher to get one for a grade. I'm not even joking

That's unreal!!!! And frustrating at the same time !!! I would understand if you were taking a university course in social media or were a celebrity that required a forum for a fan base, but for just regular fan boys like us? I believe that NFF is an amazing medium cause it allows all forms of discussion among Nintendo fans and other fan boys alike. Truly one of the best forums I've been apart of in a long time! Who started NFF anyways? that question I feel is almost as interesting as why the hell a calculus teacher would make you get Facebook for a class?!?

I find nothing wrong with the Facebook timeline besides the fact that people complain about it so much. You see, I am open to new functionality and features. Now, I understand that most people live by the, "If it isn't broken, don't fix it" rule, but the way I see it is, "If it isn't broken, make it better. If it breaks, fix it and learn from your mistakes" which is a problem for most people. Companies try new things. What if NO ONE ever tried anything new because of the potential risk that people wouldn't like it? We would have nothing new. Ever.

Facebook made a bold move switching to Timeline, scaring away potential investors and also some users, but it is what the people at Facebook thought was best for company: Take a new approach, no more basic-generic layout. But people didn't like that, and that is the problem with people. They think they own the website and they think they should be, no, DESERVE to be catered to as users, however, it is still the owners website, maybe he likes this user interface better and wants to stick with it? Okay, cool, I am fine with that. You should be too. Think of it this way, you go to a friends house, use his Android phone with Go Launcher installed on it, he decides to change it to Apex Launcher, you don't like it. Would you stop being his friend because he changed HIS phone to something YOU didn't like?

yup!
id smack him right in the mouth





but I found facebook to be sort of a social media popularity contest rather than a forum for people to contact one another and with timeline, a layout that requires you to have pictures I feel that fact is further proven. The only unfortunate thing is that once upon deactivation of my account i realized that over 100 million people use this for somewhat of a forum to contact friends and loved ones and not just a meme and concert photo booth (a.k.a are still under facebook mind control) and i'd have no way to contact some specifric people so I guess it's back to facebook for me...but im on NFF 90% of my web surfing time now XD

I like timeline. It sorts activity better than the previous layout and looks a lot cleaner.

Pikakid will become famous soon enoughPikakid will become famous soon enough

I dont care. Facebook is a website where people can talk to each other and that is what I use it for! I couldnt care less about all those whiney kids who think that changing a website's layout is the end of the world. I use it, my friends use it, and thats all that matters.
