New #Facebook Changes #dislike

Good thing I already had my Google+ set up and ready to go. . .thanks for giving me the push Facebook. I decide who's most important in my life, I want a chronological timeline/news feed and ' "if I want to hide posts from someone, I will.” '

Facebook Changes Look — and Everyone Hates New Ticker

Take a look at your Facebook page today, and let us know if you laughed or smashed your screen. Facebook has changed its look, adding a “top story” listing of the newest postings by your online friends, and the reaction is … well, not warm.

The” top stories” on each person’s page, automatically generated by Facebook, are marked with a with a blue triangle. But some users are already taking exception to being told what they should consider the highest priority posts from their friends.  One annoyed comment on the Facebook blog: “Quite frankly I don’t want Facebook deciding who is most important in my life. I want my news feed to just go chronologically and if I want to hide posts from someone, I will. Stop changing.”

“News Feed will act more like your own personal newspaper,” said Tonkelowitz. “You won’t have to worry about missing important stuff. All your news will be in a single stream with the most interesting stories featured at the top.”

The “top story” on my own page was a one-liner from an old college friend: “Packing my FB bags and headed for Google+. This sucks.”

Actually, it will now be easier for him to do that. Google+, the social-networking service Google launched over the summer, is now open to anyone who wants to join. In its start-up phase, one could only join if invited by someone who already belonged. The strategy worked: in its first month Google+ claimed 20 million members.
