Looks like FaceBook is struggling to get new users. I just logged in and clicked “All Friends” and insead of loading the All Friends page it brings you to the Find Friends page.
It’s a matter of time before FaceBook goes the way of MySpace…here’s why I think that:
- It’s very user un-friendly, it’s hard to find anything because nothing is real clear as far as navigation.
- You have to use Apps to do anything…this is a major security hazard! If you’ll notice when go to “throw a snowball” at someone, you have to allow that app access to all your information and all the information of everyone on your friends list. Example of what that means. There is a woman suing Blockbuster because she added that stupid app to her profile and Block Buster sent a message to everyone on her friends list telling her what movies she rents! Can you imagine that!!
- One thing they do that is ok, if a person isn’t on your friends list, it forces you to send a message or send a request to be added…I understand they do this to keep perving at a minimum, but why would you want to be a person’s “friend” if you can’t really see their profile…they should at least, like on Linkedin (Oliver Bodnar) give a brief shot of their profile…but I suspect the people who send friend requests withoutr ever sending you a message first, just use it as a popularity contest, much like people do on Twitter (OneArmedSEO)
