Dear Facebook: What part of 'No, I Do Not Want Timeline' do you not get?

    Did we stutter, mumble or fart?

    Seriously...it's not that big of a deal. I switched to timeline the day it offered me to switch and it's not bothered me one bit.

    I mean, it's how your profile is viewed...not how you view your page on the backend. I don't get the whining.

    I hated it as much as anyone, but took the plunge when I saw it was just ... better. Plus I could post great landscape photos of golf courses.

    I feel your pain. I go on fb when I have time to kill and I hate the timeline. Especially since the bomb shelter that I have my lunches in takes forever to load anything in. It sucks, and it's one of the main reasons I've taken my insanity to Twitter.

    This. I find it really ... organized. And it looks better. It's all just a matter of accepting and adjusting. That said, I still can't stand Facebook messenger.

    Yeah, I don't use messenger - but the Timeline is a much nicer look and really affects nothing on the posting end. Ain't a big deal.

    I don't think it's the simple fact that Timeline exists that has Starman riled. It's the fact that the look is being forced upon us by Facebook.

    It's nothing new for Facebook to do that, but it's irritating that we're not given the option to opt out of it if we choose to.

    Facebook is changing its format to further integrate itself into users' lives and to streamline information in a more useful way for advertisers. It's trying to make money while still offering the product for free.
