Facebook (update)

The wrath has been harsh and swift. Reactions to facebook's new design have been extremely negative, with more than 100,000 joining a group called “Students Against Facebook News Feed.” And that's just one such group - there are tons more out there to the same tune.

Oddly enough, most of the preeminent tech blogs were praising the changes as a quantum leap in social networking, as written below. (Ok, maybe not a quantum leap, but you get the point.)

There probably is a middle ground in terms of new features and maintaining some level of privacy from stalkers, but time will tell if Facebook can find it. In Zuck's own words: "Calm down. Breathe. We hear you." A little condescending, but at least they realize they have a problem.
