It puzzles me that all the recent changes just “appear” and they assume that users will appreciate them. I am sure I’m not the only low-tech person who uses Facebook. Unfortunately, it has become a necessity to have Facebook access in order to communicate with certain groups I am part of. I will be checking out the new google+ to see if it is any more user-friendly…

There must be different approach than the current bucketing approach. I have written about the bucket vs tag approach for managing friends list and feed filtering here http://rohanrao.com/facebook-lists-and-g oogle-circles-the-bucket-approach-and-ho w-it-fails/

Would love to have your thoughts.

They have already done some automatic things that have have pissed off and disillusioned a lot of the people who come across my “Home” page! What people want is for people like them to quit assuming they “know” what we want! Why not ask?
