The new facebook does not bother me at all. I am just happy that I have been able to find a bunch of old childhood classmates and old roommates that I have lost touch with on there.

Same here.

This Old vs. New Facebook War could be the bloodiest non-Bill the Butcher-related altercation ever.

i've not really tried the new facebook since i've still had the old as an option. but re: hiding people's apps on their page (because believe me, there's a few people i'm friends with who only seem to have joined for the apps, they have a ton), i found a way ages ago. you can collapse or expand applications now, and once you collapse the app, it stays that way unless you click to expand it. so if you don't want to see the "what eye colour are you" app, it'll be hidden on everyone's. so basically, everyone's profiles are very small now

and i do wish facebook was still somewhat exclusive. it'd be lame to only have college students on there, but i wish it'd be for only employees and college students, instead of everyone.

I think the new facebook should be called the assbook.

They're currently eliminating the option to choose between old and new, for those still unaware.

I don't spend enough time on Facebook to honestly care that much, but the new one isn't an improvement.

How many friends do you have on Facebook that don't fit into one of those two categories?

With popularity comes douchebags, any semblance of exclusivity won't change that.

I think it's cool how my parents have been able to reconnect with so many of their old friends through it... but I wish they had their own section, like LMP's Parentsbook or something, separate from my Facebook.

i've had an account for sometime now, and about 2 weeks agos tupid me somehow managed to send a request to joign facebook to my entire yahoo contacts list...which i havent even updated in 4 years ..so i got all these terribly awkward replies from people in high school that i dont even remember and then at one point i had saved teachers' emails in there for sending work online and they replied too, asking about how school is going yada yada....ahhhh...it's been terrible social anxiety, with all sorts of people trying to set up coffee dates, i dont even know how to reply to those. seriously, i am hating facebook for that, it's apparently too advanced for my 20thcentury ass.

I agree with the rest of your complaints, though.
Well no, but it was closed and self-contained, by using school issued email addresses it avoided getting creeps (not calling anyone a creep ) and spam, and fake profiles like MySpace turned into.

that don't go to college or belong to an employer's network? like two or three. coincidentally, those are also the ones who have 500 applications on their page.
