Change in the Spring air... Facebook changing their Fan Page layout March 30, 2012

 On March 30th, 2012, Facebook has decided that we all will have a new page layout.

I don't know how I feel about this. I am still recovering from the change in my personal Facebook page. I am aware that sometimes change is good, and it may even help some fan pages to thrive, but I also believe that people should have a choice in what interface they are comfortable with. I personally am not of fan of being forced to change; it just "ain't constitutional", lol. And...it's almost enough to make a person want to switch websites. ALMOST.

 I will admit, that while I don't like being forced to change, I have adapted to the new "Timeline" layout and some of its features. I am even beginning to like them. So, maybe the Fan Page will be a change for the better. My question to you is, what do you think about the new changes to come? Are you "Yay-ing" or Nay-ing"? Let's discuss!

Many people are creatures of habit and do not like change. For those of us that like change I love the new timeline layout! It will just take others a little time to get used to like many other things in life.

I guess I am just old fashion, change just doesn't come easy. It took a while for me to get use to the timeline, now a new change, nôooooo.

Facebook is a BIG part of my life and I would hate to have to live without it. However I do wish they would STOP making all kinds of changes that loyal users don't want and START fixing some of the glitches and problems with security and such. Games like Zynga's are providing a large amount of revenue to Facebook and those of us who play them. Keeping that in mind would be something I would recommend to them!!! (in case you can't tell - I absolutely dispise the timelines!)

All I can say is, I'm glad I never got sucked into the whole Facebook thing! I value my privacy more than I care to know trivial, insignificant things about people I hardly know. "I'm in the kitchen making a sandwich." REALLY? With regard to the changes being made - that is the nature of the internet beast. I can't remember how many times I've gone to a familiar site to find it completely different. Nothing on the internet remains the same for very long, so I would say that you Facebook users will just have to get used to it.

the "new fanpage" will be the same layout as personal pages.. or so i have already noticed.. and i hate it!.. FB needs to leave the timeline layout for personal pages.. and keep the old layout.. or a similar layout to the old one for "fan" pages.. it makes it more professional that way. Since "fan" pages get more comments and visits per day anyway... it will just be confusing =.=

I don't really like the changes around facebook. I like when we used to have tabs on our profiles and everything was easier to navigate. I think that all of their changes are making the site overstimulating and harder to understand. The Newsfeed doesn't work as good as the old one (before 2011); it doesn't show all of my "Close Friends'" posts, even though I have it set to show all of everything from them. I just am not digging all of the changes and I wish they'd leave it alone so that we can appreciate it and teach others how to use it. The new changes have ran off a lot of people that I know, because they feel that its gotten to complicated.

http://www.facebook.com/#!/tylerjamesmyers I have a page for my son who is new to acting. We keep family and friends up on everything, and he actually has a few fans so far! lol The new page layout is always a little scary at first! But usually change is for the best! I tried it and it is quite different! It will definately take some getting used to.
