    Please stop messing with the home page on Facebook. All of the new things that you have provided and we did not want have turned out to be a nightmare. The blue corner thing is a joke because it covers the things I want to read and it won’t click off. If you look on many home pages I think that you will feel all the displeasure of your users. Why don’t you take a poll of what we want and don’t want. It is even an ordeal to send a message to someone. You guys had better wake up and listen to your customers. Someday someone will come up with a better site and you will be in the same class as My Space. Thank you.

      Oh lawd. Does this look like facebook to you? Do you see the “blue corner thing that is a joke” anywhere on this page? Noooo. This is another website. A completely different one. Apart from Facebook. Like, separate.

      Here’s the Facebook profile of the owner of Facebook: http://www.facebook.com/zuck

      I’m sure he’s totally going to care.
      :D

    Linda Pelle: You DO know you are not talking to the makers of Facebook, or anyone even affiliated with Facebook….. right? This is a LIST of people to CONTACT for Facebook and for other neat sites and/or celebs, be it web or music or whatnot. You are preaching to the choir; the people you are griping at will never see this post. Delete it and put it on the page for one of the Facebook developers. Sheesh.

    PLEASE TAKE IT BACK TO NORMAL…….. PEOPLE HATE TIHS AND IT WAS UNNECESSARY….. YOU WILL END UP LOSING YOUR GAMERS, I’VE ABOUT GIVEN UP ALREADY….

    WHY MUST YOU KEEP CHANGING THINGS….. I’D LIKE MY ORIGINAL FB BACK WHERE MY STATUS STAYED AT TOP OF PAGE, BUT CAN’T GET THAT EITHER

    INSTEAD OF PROGRESSING FURTHER, YOU ARE REGRESSING AND MAKING IT WORSE AND NOT USER FRIENDLY,

    I’m loving the subscription service, besides wishing for the suggestions pool to grow I would love to see them make the suggestions searchable by industries or interests. It’s going to be a great tool to stay informed on particular issues or fields.

      I agree Jme – having such a directory would be very useful. But for now, this blog post will have to act as the directory! :-)

    Thanks for the list Michael, it was very helpful. Linda and Deb, you’re really not in the right place.

    The changes Facebook is making are definitely progress, and make me more excited to interact with Facebook in the future!

      Kashif – At the top right of my blog you can enter in your E-mail and subscribe to my blog. Unfortunately I don’t have the functionality to notify you of any changes I make to this list, you’ll just have to come back every once and awhile to see the updates.

    I found the Winklevoss twins, whom most of you will know from their depiction in The Social Network as claiming to have invented Facebook. (The real guys, not the actor.)
