Haters of Facebook Changes Build Up

In a recent survey of over 1,000 people conducted by Sodahead, a social-voting-based site, it has been shown that Facebook users aren’t too happy with the recent changes the social network has made.

According to this survey of 1000 people, about 86% of the social network audience said that they strongly disliked the recent changes Facebook has made.

The most disapproval for the new features came from teens, with a whopping 91 percent of that group saying that Facebook should nix the changes. Seventy-nine percent of young adults said they disapproved of the new changes, although the site does not explicitly lay out who constitutes a young adult.

To narrow down the results even more, it appears that women are more upset about the changes than men.  Eighty-nine percent of women called for scrapping the new Facebook, while only 78 percent of men have said they disapprove of the new features.

Through all of these upset Facebook users, there is a small portion of them that actually enjoy the new changes.  These users, according to the study, tend to be information technology employees, or people who had an income of $100,000 or more per year.

This of course is not the first, nor the last time that Facebook users have been upset about changes to the site.  And like always, over time, users will love the new changes.

Time For The Weekly Facebook Changes

Starting on Thursday, Facebook will unveil a real-time stream of what users are watching and listening to online.

The social network will introduce its new “ticker” stream alongside partnerships with major media companies at its f8 conference in San Francisco.

Founder Mark Zuckerberg will unveil this update as well as adding some changes to the “Like” feature allowing developers to create their own verbs such as “Want”, “Desire” or “Need”.

Facebook’s 750 million users will be able to automatically share activity such as viewing, listening and reading in the live “ticker” stream, once they have opted in to the feature. The new stream will be separate from the existing Facebook news feed, although popular items – such as the most frequently played songs among friends – will appear in the column.
