I just got the new fb layout, I hate it. I couldn't even find the logout button until one of my friends told me where it was. I don't think the logout button should be hidden like that.

Maybe that's why they hid the logout!

I'm getting sick. to. death. of all the juvenile, pedestrian "polls" and "contests" that are plaguing my home page and my profile. The thing is...my friends are not even really sending these damn things out...it's automatic or something. I was also trying to accept a couple of birthday calendar requests, and every time I clicked "accept," it would take me to some bogus "picture of the day" thing or "most lovable person" contest.

I realize that all the MySpace kiddies are coming over to FB, but if they'd wanted all that crap, they'd have stayed there. The rest of us came to FB because of the more mature vibe.

I feel myself weaning from FB, which is probably a good thing anyway.

My cousin just posted "I can't wait for our snow day together tomorrow...love you xoxo" on her husband's wall.

Like...seriously?

Do you need to post that on your SPOUSE's wall?

This is the same woman who has to join all the "I Love My Daughter" and "I Love My Husband" groups. Well... should HOPE you love your daughter and husband!!!! And the whole, "If you think your daughter is the greatest blessing in the world, put this is in your profile" stuff. Whatever.

And when people have in their profiles, "I love my husband, we have beautiful children, life couldn't be more perfect!!!!"

As for the 'my life is perfect', 'i'm more in love than the day I met my husband!' crap that people update with that is total b.s.. Ya, that's annoying.
So I just joined facebook..I had an account (still do) for my work with my married name. Decided to do one under maiden. Thought it would be fun and didn't want my work tied to me personally.

But I'll admit it's odd. What do people do on this? All I see is a page with all sorts of info on it -- not sorted (I like my data organized LOL) and you just friend people and then?????

I can't even find the logout button (they changed over the last week or something?)

Plus my old boyfriends are sending friend requests..which is weird. I'm not married and am not interested in a relationship but it still feels kind of weird to say the least.

Anyway it seems to mostly be high school people as far as I can see. All the beautiful people married beautiful people and have beautiful kids and all that...yadda yadda

So what do you all post? I mean I don't want it too personal.

And WTH is a "poke" -- doesn't sound like something I should be doing when the kids are up

People who really are happy and feeling good about things don't typically feel the need to assert that point in a really public way.

You can tell the difference, too, between boasting and feeling gratitude. Huge difference.

When couples are chatty on Facebook, it can get annoying pretty quickly. I was friends with a couple where they would carry on conversations publicly in FB, and then make mention that they were sitting in the same house, each on their own laptop. Uh, okay.

As a couple they recently defriended a bunch of people, including some mutual friends. The wife defriended me, the husband didn't. It's all very strange — the wife seems to have some social "issues."

I call couples going overboard with affection online a DDA — digital display of affection. Much like a PDA, it's a fine line between "Aw, cute," and "Please, just stop."

I have no doubt she loves her children! Of course she does! But just a tad excessive.


I love my life. I have a wonderful loving husband who is supprtive in everything we do. The day my son was born was one of the best days of my life ever my son is the best thing to ever happen to me. The day my daughter was born the second best day of my life. My two kids are my world and I love them with all of my heart.My life is perfect the way it is and I wouldnt change a thing about it.
Um, I hope she doesn't actually tell her daughter that she's second best. Just sayin'.

That's kinda cute. I mean, she posted it on his WALL and not a status update about it, so it was meant closer to privately then totally public. I occasionally post stuff on my hubbs wall. I'll have tons of stuff from everyone else, but never him cause obviously we see each other every day. Once and a while it's nice to see something like that unexpected from that person.
Eh. I've never witnessed her doing something that wasn't for attention. Maybe you gotta know her to understand my annoyance with her
I just got the new FB this evening, and I noticed it I click on Top News it filters out all of my fan pages and only shows posts by my friends.

This is the same girl that posted about 40 ridiculous maternity glamor photos of herself and got upset when not enough people commented on them.

I like the new layout. It looks more modern and I like that the notifications or on top right there instead of the bottom.

The plain status updates seem to be back, under the Friends section. I didn't have that yesterday.

I like seeing just plain status updates. I play quite a few of the games, so status updates can get lost in all of that.

Thanks Nallia. I just shared that on Twitter/FB, since a lot of people were lamenting not being able to keep track of anything with the new changes.
major dislike on how the notification icons no longer travel with me when i scroll down... xP
The new layout is triggering my OCD-ness. It's way too cluttered, with everything all crammed in at the top of the page.

I've blocked all notifications from friends who play all those games. Mafia Wars, Vampire Wars, Farmville, something else about cafes and cooking and fish and blah blah yakkity f*cking schmack. I can't emphasize how much I don't care if you need some hay for your goat.

Then people send me cutesy little hearts and religious things and I feel like a jerk if I don't accept it, but of course when you click on it it's all, "Hey! Want to add yet another app to your account?" Really don't, actually.

I am also annoyed that once some girls I used to be friends with realized I'm not married (but living with a man) and I'm childless, they stopped talking to me. They've commented on mutual friends' stuff but only if they got married or just got pregnant/gave birth. WTF?

This is me, Facebook curmudgeon.

Lol, I do play a lot of games, and I hope my friends have enough sense to block the apps they aren't using so I don't clutter their walls. I block the apps that I don't use.
