As much as i’m tempted to leave it at that i just went through the highlights of yesterday’s f8 conference and the changes they announced actually seem like a pretty decent improvement. Especially the fact they are getting rid of the “LIKE” button and instead introduced Facebook Gestures. So now when you click on a song..instead of clicking ‘like’ you can choose “listened’. You’ll be able tell everyone you’re ‘EATING” at a particular restaurant or “WATCHING” this movie….see where this is going. You can basically turn any verb or noun into a button.
Can’t wait for the first person to come up with a “POMPING” button.
The major feature announced was a Timeline of your entire life. Yes…your whole damn life from the day you were born can now be added to Facebook basically making it a giant scrapbook. You’ll be able to add significant moments of your life to your timeline and other can scroll back to see your whole history. Like so.
Not very clear, but you get the picture right.
They also added the ability to watch movies or tv shows, read the news on CNN, listen to music all while never leaving Facebook. Whatever you’re watching or listening will be added to the real time ticker so everyone can see that you’re watching Brokeback Mountain for the 15th time this week.
There are a bunch of other features, but im too lazy to go through all of them so go read more HERE.
