Facebook Pulled a Fast One On Us!! >:(

hey guys,

this post is just a short rant about Facebook’s decision to make their “pages” (which businesses, artists, and other organizations use) look exactly like a typical facebook profile.

WHATTT???!!!

What were they thinking? I don’t know about you guys, but I think this is absolutely awful. How are organizations supposed to differentiate themselves from individuals on Facebook now? Everybody looks the same, it’s absolutely ridiculous. What is the point of creating a “page” instead of just an individual profile now? You are getting the exact same features.

The only good to come of this is that page activity will be posted on the news feeds of their respective fans, and you can update your status….but those features could have been implemented without the format change! Now, my music player is all the way at the bottom of the page, squeezed into a little box….and so is my events widget & mailing list widget…these are most important to me, and now nobody will be able to see them unless they scroll down half a page!!! And i don’t know about you but I rarely click on those “tabs” towards the top that facebook claims are oh so convenient. People usually give a website a few seconds to find something to hook them in, how are organizations with facebook pages supposed to do this now? Its impossible.

you can go here to view all of the user comments about this new implementation…i encourage you to comment both here and on facebook, I am curious to see what you guys think!
