The Facebook Problem

This is the best summation of problems that Facebook is giving us.

Here’s my problem with Facebook: It’s the same thing, day in and day out. Every Monday, people complain about it being Monday. On Wednesday, people whine that it’s Wednesday. And on Friday, people rejoice. Throw some useless statuses about what that person is eating or doing and you more or less have my newsfeed. Too many ads, too many people being tagged in statuses, too many spam posts.

I don’t like having to get used to a new interface every three months when Zuck feels like rolling out “progressive” changes that more or less invade privacy. Facebook started out as a window into the lives of our peers. It keeps trying to reinvent itself because it already knows, just like we’ll all come to realize, that our peers are average and boring, just like us.
