Facebook backlash over redesign, millions of chavs set to fuck off back to MySpace

Regular users of Facebook will have noticed that the website introduced a new design a few months ago, but gave the option to revert back to the old one. Naturally, as many people dislike, and in many cases, fear change, quite a few people did revert back to the old one.

However, the new design is now compulsory, and it’s caused those people who prefer the old one to complain. There have been Facebook groups, complaints and even threats of leaving the website, all from these people who dislike the new design.

Now, I can’t keep calling them ‘these people’… I’ll need something more descriptive, more accurate. I know, tossholes.

Tossholes such as these:

“This layout is garbage,” writes Andrew Wadup. “Why fix what ain’t broken? Keep the old version,” pleads Eddie Santos.

Those were comments left on the notice board on the site.

Facebook meanwhile stated about their new design:

We set out to make Facebook simpler, cleaner, more relevant, and easier to control. With your feedback and participation, we believe we’ve gotten to the best Facebook yet.

The new design is different, and we understand that some people will be uncomfortable with the changes. But over time, we think people will appreciate the advantages of the new design and the new features it offers.

You see, Facebook redesigned to stop all of the crap that idiots add to their profile pages appearing whenever you click on their profile. I for one was fed up of clicking on the profile of someone who came from MySpace (you know the sort of person I mean) and they had twenty million applications added to their page, which meant the page took eight years to load. Shit like the vampires app, the pirates app, the superwall, funwall, superpoke and other such crap that idiots felt they needed to add. All of it garbage.

Well, the new Facebook hides that shit away in tabs, so the MySpace crowd can be as dumb as they like and add as much shit as they like without bothering the rest of us. Now the MySpace crowd are complaining, and are even threatening to leave Facebook.

Good, fuck off back to MySpace you chav scum shitbags, take your shitty applications with you.

This is what happens you when let anyone join, I say keep Facebook elite and demand at least a university degree before people sign up.

  1. Not just a degree, a degree from a red brick and the proof of grammar and spelling proficency (did I spell that right?).

    I divorced Facebook not so long ago because I relised that as well as the crap applications I was becoming one of ‘those’ people who could sit there and read all about the life of some moron I had despised with all my heart at school. It doesn’t suprise me that 99% of the friend list I had on there hated the redesign on Facebook because they shoudn’t have been allowed to own a PC in the first place. The kind of people who tell me they’ve ‘discovered’ a website called imdb.com and I should really check it out.

    ARGH!
