But the changes have yet to hit the general, Farmville-ing public. And once they do, I expect a firestorm of hatred for the redesign. Every single time Facebook has come out with a change, we have rallied against it with vigor. Or at least enough vigor to post a status or two about it. #Irony.
Companies need to constantly improve. Or at least give the appearance of improvement. Early social media powerhouse, Myspace, stood stagnant and became a dinosaur. There is increasing pressure from shareholders to improve the bottom line, and more data suggests that people are using Facebook less than they were in the recent past. Facebook needed to make a major change in the face of actual decline.
