Facebook – What Are You Doing?

    Have you noticed latest updates on Facebook?
    Do you like or hate them?

So in case if you don’t really remember (or you are still in shock) all the features Facebook presented over short period of time – I’ve been trying to check what’s new on Facebook:

  • top stories –> highlights posts and prioritizes them at the top of your feed stream.
  • new stories –> no more “recent posts/top posts” now it’s time for “new stories”
  • buzz stream (ticker) –> on upper right on sidebar (above the list of friends who are on-line) you can find real-time stream of posts published by your friends, so no more scrolling down to check who wrote what and when. Hovering over those activities you can expand and check the content and post a comment
  • subscribes –> yes yes yes it’s more like “follow” at Twitter so if there is someone you would like to “follow” on Facebook but you don’t want to or can’t send a “friend’s request” you can subscribe to their comment stream. I think that’s one of the better ideas.
    More of “the Facebook updates” you can find on Mashable.
    If you decide to complain and don’t know where to do that, Allfacebook created a short suggestion box

    What is going on with Facebook? Why they are updating/changing so much in such a short time? Is that necessary? Is that another level of Facebook vs. Google+ battle? I’m afraid that too many changes might not help Facebook.

Update:

    Thank you Keri from Idea Girl Media for sharing a youtube video with Facebook updates:
