I am not a Social Media Guru, just a daily/hourly user of many of the platforms out there.
First to respond to my tweet, was Dano Hart. Dano has a way of finding himself in just about every hangout on Google+. He has hungout with the likes of Leo Laporte, Scoble, and a list as long as your arm. Here is what he said about the changes.
Crazy updates came out Tuesday and I almost had a heart-attack keeping up with it all. Facebook changing it’s news feed again will always bring out statuses of people saying that they basically hate change, but I, for one, welcome it. Facebook is trying to combine what we know as the “Top News” and the “Most Recent” news feed, and if they can pull this off, I will pleasantly impressed. I check Facebook often and if they can keep showing me recent news, while sprinkling in some “top news” when I haven’t checked in awhile, then I’m fine with that.
Bill Murphy (@SteelCityTerp) added his two cents as well. Bill and his wife are interpreters in the Pittsburgh Pa. area. Here is Bill’s interpretation (pun???)
If you do nothing – you will become obsolete. I’m sure that Facebook knows their users habits well. I’m guessing, as is always the case, there will be some users who will gripe at first. However, I doubt a single one will shut down their account forever.
I am waiting for a few other replies and will possibly update this post or create a new one when/if they have time to send me information. (This arena quite the busy one)
What do I think about the changes as of late?
I am always immediately angered by change. Followed quickly with a slow building like for what I see.
I love that Google+ is open to everyone now. I still do not fully love the Facebook changes (Mostly just the ticker)…
However, I have been given a sneak peek into the new Facebook Timeline that good ole Zucky spoke about in the F8 airing yesterday. I will post a few pics and a write up about it tomorrow if I get time.
What do YOU think of the changes? Leave a comment below and let me know.
