Relax, Facebook Timeline Paranoia Is Misguided

Number two, although you do have privacy controls, Timeline taps into a different level of creepiness that those controls don't manage. I may be fine with sharing a sarcastic or politically-incorrect message in 2005. However, users do so with the understanding that these messages "fade" over time. Yes, they do stay there forever of course... but they become less and less ACCESSIBLE over time. Today, someone would have to click "Older Posts" a billion times to reach my 2005 material. With Timeline, they can jump there in one click. You might find it "awesome" and "more engaging" to crawl through years of your friends' ancient content, but most of us see you as a new level of creepy beyond the normal Facebook-stalking. If people like you are doing that, then I want a tool to easily mass-purge my content older than one year.
You are correct that everyone gripes about Facebook changes, yet doesn't generally cancel their accounts. However, I do find myself using Facebook less and less over time with each new re-vamp. I have re-connected with every 3rd-grade classmate I care to re-connect with, and am *thoroughly* burned out on crappy Zynga games. It's probably smart for Facebook to cash in an IPO at this time, because its "new and exciting" phase seems to be drawing to a close.

You, sir, are a complete a55hole who is full of himself. And for, what is quite obviously, no good reason.

Why in hell would I want to use Myspace Lite in place of Facebook when I can just go to Myspace and create a far more attractive and bitchin page? That's why I am going back to Mysapce once they destroy my FB page with their garbage design crap.
I hope Facebook burns for this, because I will laugh my a55 off when they do. F*ck you,Mark Zuckerberg - Eat the corn out of my scheiße!
