What Facebook Will Look Like In A Few Years

Facebook unveiled their new design last week, and guess what: it sucks. It seems like every time they tweak their design, they end up making it more confusing and lame. So, we looked into our crystal ball to see what Facebook will probably look like in a few years. And this is what we saw:

    This is why I have my own website. $8/month is worth it to be able to fully control the look and feel of your web presence.

    Facebook, meet MySpace.

    Ok, look. Either stop bitching about it, or boycott the fucking site so they stop getting money from you being on there just to complain about it!

    OK i don’t normally comment on sht. but WTF is up with Facebook? it’s so convoluted now it’s ridiculous. I found a shtload of old friends and I’m happy w that but the navigation and all the bells and whistles are ludicrous. I just want to rap w friends

    Grrrr… I’m usually the one who wishes for everyone on the internet to get along and live in peace, but really: Shut the fuck up everyone. It’s not so bad that it needs all these articles. Stop bitching and just take 20 minutes to learn how to use something new. It’s 3 columns and a taskbar — it’s not that effin complicated. Good lord…

    I’m a recent member of Facebook and have to agree with Anonymous. I was just getting used to the site and it changed, but what do I know. I also belong to Myspace. Though I hardly log on to it anymore, I still like the ease at which you can chat with friends on instant messaging and use the mailbox. (and I’m from from a teenybopper!) This is just my opinion of course.

    A humorless wasted opportunity if I ever saw one.

    Have you ever noticed that people who switched to Facebook from MySpace almost never know you can shut off every single thing they disliked about MySpace with a check box in their user options? Most of them don’t even know there’s a page of user options.

    Tried Myspace 1st; hated it from the start. Later got into Facebook. Definitely better than WastedSpace (aka Myspace). Sites like Twitter are better because interaction is boiled down to it’s essence. If you want to communicate without looking at a bunch of crappy decoration, micro-blogging is the way to go. The only thing missing from Twitter, as opposed to sites like Facebook, is that you have to link to pics and stuff instead of including it right there for readers to see at a glance. But, there is always Utterli. The best of both worlds.

    I have to agree with @Anonymous about why Facebook was started and I think it is still great, but I also kinda agree with @Anonymous that Myspace truly is a high school-ish hangout. It reeks of tweenish immaturity. Pages take forever to load with all the crap that people put on them, too.

    Oh, @Anonymous, “FB users are the people who want to be on the internet, but don’t want to be called dorks for doing it.” That is the best part of Facebook. That’s what I like about it. Come on, you have to admit lots of people have been fighting the “inner dork” for a long time. It’s only the last few years that it’s started to become cool to be a technology geek. Thank the lord for Facebook!

    @RoboPanda Yea, can’t wait for the “call someone a homo app”; that don’t ask don’t tell crap won’t fly.

    If you really want a good Social Network, try Utterli.com . It combines all the best of the social networks and leaves out all the stuff that sucks. They are taking social networking into “Web 2.5″.

    Facebook is the best thing on the internet…I’ve used it to track down my grandmother who owes me 10 grand. She borrowed money from me and went to the casinos and never came home that night – that was 7 years ago.

    After writing on her wall posting ‘where my money ho?’ – she finally caved in and she now works at wal-mart. Making some real effort to pay me back.

    Thank you facebook!

    Wellll,
    When you go to vote on whether you like / want the new look, you are only allowed to place a vote if you allow them to access & publicly post information from your personal page. That is YOU now giving them the right to use your personal property as they wish. Which is what they tried to do with that I own it all controversy.

    But it was just an accident wasn’t it?

    The cool kids took a vote; they said we’re even bigger dorks than before for thinking being a geek is cool.

    I’ve added hundreds of 30+ folks on myspace (wastedspace, ZING!) and I interact with most of them regularly. There are high school aged children I’m sure, but I don’t add them, nor do I interact with them.

    You know that cheese that comes with the wax on it? Turns out that you don’t have to eat the wax too.

    Bull shit. Facebook was founded on very different ideals than Myspace. Myspace originated as a way for musicians to find other band-mates and connect with other bands. However, the tween group quickly took Myspace as their own. Facebook was designed to be a method for college students to organize, collaborate, and generally network. THAT is why Facebook is ‘boring’. However, I would argue that Facebook isn’t boring, but unfettered and polished. To me, Myspace feels juvenile, poorly planned, and insubstantial. Facebook has (at least used to have) an interface that clearly put far more emphasis on information than on frilly design and backgrounds. Although Facebook has some piss-poor management at the moment, I still say it kicks the absolute shit out of Myspace.

    all the busted css, blinged out godawefulness, endless chainletter bulletins and chronic narcissism of myspace is definitely superior.

  38. Anonymous says:

    Myspace always has and always will be cooler and have more style than facebook.

    Facebook is for tight asses who don’t want to meet new people, or have fun on the net. FB users are the people who want to be on the internet, but don’t want to be called dorks for doing it.

    Facebook is boring, and will die a lame boring death. Perhaps it will eat some tainted peanut butter.

    Sure, a white wall of text doesn’t beat the shit out of colored construction paper.

    FB certainly is unfettered by fun. Where can I listen to every song in the catalog of a music artist on facebook? Play a game without adding a stupid app? leave a comment without every other friend reading it? leave a comment in picture form without adding a stupid app? Watch original comedy and other content made specifically for facebook?

    So there was some spam, and some dumbshits, possibly even you, got phished. Abandon ship!! Did fb users quit email 20 years ago too?

    The place has no personality and character, and I suppose people find that comforting. “We’ll just call it more mature, rather than cold, sterile and inflexible.” Seriously, twitter is just a wall of text and it’s infinitely more engaging, entertaining, and social. Twitter is also better for networking in too many ways to count.

    BUT: Lord knows the world needs more places to network and less places to have fun while doing it: Mission Accomplished Snoozebook!

    On myspace you can also enjoy and audio onslaught of terrible music playing in a loop on every page you click, and games and layouts that are 100 MB sized web-pages. Myspace looks like something that belongs on worst-of-web. You and your teeny-bopper friends can have it, just keep your juvenile “layouts,” cookie-cutter eyesores you call profiles, and generic flashgames away from Facebook. The adults will be there displaying pictures and videos, and we’ll buy consoles to game and MP3 players for music.

    Yeah, ideals that they fucked away when they made it open to the public. It was cool and something different. Then they made it a shitty version of myspace. Then myspace was having issues with too many users, then bots came. Once that happened people got annoyed. Now that myspace has worked out those issues, everyone had already switched to facebook and didn’t look back. If they would have, they would have realized that there was something nicer that they had left behind. But now all myspace is, is high school kids, people who have no idea how bad it was for those few months until the kinks got fixed.

    Completely. Facebook beats the hell out of Myspace…Loser “Anonymous” must be a 12 year old that doesn’t know how to use FB.
