Reports that Facebook is charging for website use is mere rumor, but timeline is real nuisance. Meanwhile changes introduced in 2011 are going to hurt the social networking site really hard

The big brother is always watching you. No I am not talking about FBI or other Federal agencies trying to keep an eye on the citizens, but the lovable Facebook that is becoming more and more intrusive with every passing day. Their new changes in the social networking website have made people a lot more uncomfortable.

Though no one is still sure as to how it is going to affect the website’s popularity, nonetheless what analysts are sure about is the fact it would not add to its popularity.

Several changes that have been made a couple of days ago make people wonder that this website means only collecting users’ data rather than felicitating their contacts with their friends and relatives.

One big change that the social networking giant has made is real time sharing. It shows as to what a person is actually doing. Whether a person is reading something, liking something, making any new friends or even ticking off an old friend, it will show all. Yes and people are particularly more disturbed by this feature.

It will even tell a friend which songs I am listening, which news I am reading and whom I am talking to.

People are simply disappointed with the new features and say that Facebook needs to change it, otherwise, the popular website may lose millions of users who are not satisfied with the new changes. A disappointed reader says, “Zuckerbergs Law is nothing more than a revenue-generating engine. Yes sometimes technology is great but just because you can, does not always mean you should.  Zuckerberg you got enough money put it to rest before we all start thinking you moonlight for Homeland Security”.

Another reader goes on to add, “We need to have an intervention with EVERYONE who uses the site, as it serves no purpose whatsoever but to glamor users into believing there’s one”.

    I agree anything on the net canbe found NOT JUST facebook. But realy whats theharm of people knowing what book youre reading. Thats why you use the site intelligently and dont post or let apps post anything you dont want seen. And second comment, while i love google+, google has more information about people than facebook will ever have. If your phone is Android then google knows everything you do. Samewith apple and their iOS.

    I’m leaving Facebook. I’ve only been on for 3 months. I can’t take it anymore. Too many changes. Too many hackers getting in. It’s too much for me. I’m just going to use email from now on.

    I read the article above I now understand what the whole story is about the rumor of charging for facebook , but yet if everyone reads this and thinks actually what the changes have done is the changes will now protect alot of people. because like me I have had someone that was terrorizing me on facebook. so yea in that case its good ,but in alot of peoples eyes it violates thier privacy with convos and remarks on facebook. so I am not gonna say the changes are all bad . but getting used to it is gonna take a min or two lol .
    Sincerly,
