Today is September 21st, 2011. Today is not only the 10 year and 10 day anniversary of the attacks on the United States Pentagon (never forget!), but also the 24 hour anniversary of when Facebook's developers changed the graphical user interface for the hundredth time. And the world could not be any more pissed off.
Facebook users are so arrogant. Every time Facebook makes changes, everybody gets on the rag and hops on Facebook to voice their disapproval:
"Dear Mar Zuckerberg, I hate the new Facebook."
"I dunno about everyone, but I think THE NEW FACEBOOK SUCKS. imo"
"The Facebook changes are stupid! WHAT WERE THEY THINKING?"
"I don't understand how to use the new Facebook! FML"
Too much of a dumbass to figure out how to use a simple social networking site? Well boo hoo hoo! Go find other ways to waste your time. If you don't like the way Facebook works, then don't fucking use it. Go back to MySpace, or sign up for Google+. Either way, quit your bitching. Nobody cares.
The main thing that pisses me off is the arrogance of these moronic Facebook users. People bitch about Facebook making changes despite the fact that Facebook is free. Facebook has never charged membership or subscription fees, it has always been available to users at no cost. News flash to everyone that complains about Facebook every time the programmers make adjustments: Facebook does not owe you one fucking thing. That would be like if McDonald's handed out free french fries with every order, and then decided to change the recipe of the french fries, and customers bitched that the fries were too salty. What does Facebook care if you don't like it? It's not like they're losing money from your disapproval. If you don't like it, then don't use it.
All of you jackasses that bitch about Facebook every single time the programmers change the GUI are made are total hypocrites. Think about it, all of you are using Facebook to protest Facebook. By simply logging in to preach your disapproval of Facebook to the world, Facebook is making money off of you. Congratulations! Facebook is making a profit off of your angry, self-righteous status updates! Either way, Facebook wins, and you lose. Get a life.
Besides, change is not always a bad thing. I mean shit, look at what Facebook used to be.
This is what Facebook looked like in 2006
For everyone who is a fan of reading recent status updates for extended periods of time without having to check everyone's Facebook page (like me), the version of Facebook pictured above did not even have a newsfeed. Hell, I remember when the newsfeed was introduced a few years ago. Everyone got their panties in a bunch like they are now, dubbing Facebook as "stalkerbook" because it makes it easier for people to follow what you're doing. Now? It seems that people spend most of their time on Facebook scrolling through the newsfeed.
Get over yourselves, angry Facebook users. In less than two weeks, you'll be used to the "new" Facebook and forget about what Facebook used to look like, as you keep logging in to show the world what you are doing with your life at the moment. As well as see what other people are doing with their lives. It's fucking Facebook for crying out loud, not AP Calculus. You will figure it out before you know it.
In my rant about MySpace a couple years ago, I wrote that my primary gripe with MySpace was that the developers never fixed what was wrong with it: Too many flashy ads and too much content on user's profiles made it a pain in the ass to load and view. To put things in perspective, Facebook is estimated to be worth around $50 billion, and MySpace sold over the summer for $35 million. What would you rather have, a product that prides itself on innovation and evolution, or a product that is content on where it's at? I'll take Facebook for $50 billion. And if you still disagree, then get out.
