FB...Here we go again...
I do not like the new profile format. I do not need to throw my personals, photo albums and FB 'suggestions' in your face. You are free to open them anytime with the tabs [which by the way are 'gone']. Where would my collection of links go? Unlike status updates, this IS my FB History! You can read them as a mini-blog!...
Do I have permission to plaster your photos on my front page? did you ask for mine?

Top 10 Social Media Parodies
The bigger than my icon, I don't like *. To have FB 'suggest and post' I don't like. As for changing back to the old style, there should be an option for that. And for EVERYONE's information, I am not angry. These are comments to rudementary change and elicit no emotion from me.
Shows photos, videos, and links straight from your Home page in a five column newspaper format.
This is NOT FaceBook...there are no security issues, since this accessed from your Home [not Wall] so only you see it
Warning" It does take more than "30 seconds" and may freeze up your computer.
Videos are two columns wide; Photos may rotate from one to two columns...it has 'moods';
*Icons are one column wide, so no need to strain your eyes- I am 50+ (-OuO-)
Click any item and it will open a new page, just like flipping through a newspaper. Click the aarticle, or the FB friend who posted it- it goes straight to their page.

Being invited to Subscribe before I even read a single article.
Too many photos of faces, cute animations, logos, anything that attracts my attention AWAY from the article or blog post.
A column that only takes up 40% of the width of the screen, show how much of their 'usable' brain is being used [that's 40% of the 10%, to be technical].
I'm tired of our socitey of blipverts.
Car crash at intersection. "Didn't you see the light turn KOHLS?"
