The many Faces of Facebook

Facebook is a fickle mistress. She changes her looks every month or so and spawns countless groups with names like:

“If you hate the new FACEBOOK, sign THIS PETITION!”
“Why did Facebook change? If you can’t stand it and throw up at the sight of it, join now!”
“Does Facebook’s new layout give you explosive diarrhea? Join this group!”
“Me no like it! Facebook ugly site! Where am status! Join it!”

There is no promise or hint of gain by joining these groups. Just groups of like-minded people all gathering in virtual spaces with no other purpose than to voice their displeasure at the way a particular website has things arranged on a screen. What happens in these “groups”? Are there parties? Do people post messages like “Remember how our feeds used to be in one place and now you have to click a lot all over the place? Man, that sucks!”

I just created a new Facebook group: “If the way Facebook’s website is laid out causes you high levels of anger and frustration, then you spend too much time on Facebook.”

Please join.

Grrr! I totally get this. And I'm so joining.
Does that mean I'm spending too much time on FB?
