86% of Users Hate the Facebook Changes

Facebook Truth

When it comes to polls, there is a general tilt towards the negative side of the results. People who are outraged are more likely to respond to one than people who are satisfied. At 86% negative, this goes beyond a statistical anomaly.

People don’t like the Facebook changes. Period.

In a relatively small segment of just over 1000 of the 800 million Facebook users, the results were quite clear. Even a sampling of the blogosphere (in one case, Facebook was called the worst of all internet insults, “Facebook, the New AOL“) and chatter on Facebook and Twitter show the same results. Despite a very aggressive and thorough change that was designed to make people (and advertisers) love them more, the recent changes at Facebook can easily be classified in the lemon category.

Our friends over at SodaHead put together this infographic illustrating the results of their poll. Teens seem to hate it the most, and with that particular demographic growing in importance from a business perspective, things don’t look good for Facebook. Then again, we’ll still be using it tomorrow, so does it really matter?

  1. i’ve recently found a site where it seems someone has managed to learn how to customize myspace again.

    once i spread that out i’m sure everyone will come back to it.

    myspace was always better than facebook up until they butchered it, and everyone i know was only on myspace up untill then.

    Haters gonna hate. A few squeaky wheels can be really loud!

  3. Z is in charge of the company. That’s his arrogance at work. He is immature and incapable of running a company. He doesn’t listen to his employees. As long as he is in charge, dumb things will continue to come from the company.

    I think someone too the movie too seriously. Don’t criticize based on what the media shows you. Movies are made to be dramatic, more than they are to inform. Quit complaining, go outside and play.

  5. “Z is in charge of the company. That’s his arrogance at work. He is immature and incapable of running a company. ”

    How come you describe the owner of one of the second biggest internet business in the world as immature and incapable?!! if he is what you say he is, FB wouldn’t be what it is now!!

  6. Facebook is a free service – if you don’t like it then just leave. Simple. You aren’t the people being sold to, you are the people being sold to advertisers.

    People’s sense of entitlement to free online services is just ridiculous. It seems like there’s an outcry every time facebook or twitter moves something a bit to the the left.
