Will The New Facebook Profile Make “Nostalgia” Disappear For Ever? - Page 2
The protests were surely following a now familiar pattern:
“In the history of Facebook changes, the pattern has typically been that users complain loudly at first and threaten to leave the site but then eventually learn to live with, if not like, the new approach.”
However, Facebook has announced seven important updates in the conference, of which the changes to the Profile page seem to be the ones which will have far reaching consequences.
In a nutshell, the Facebook Profile page is becoming your life story, your illustrated autobiography, a chronicle in which everything you chose to appear right from your birth day, everything you posted on Facebook reflecting your daily life and interaction with those around you will be available to anyone who is allowed an access. The whole information will be nicely indexed, year wise and moth wise for easy access.
The social impact of such a feature, available on the 800 million members and possibly billions who will eventually join the network is, at the minimum mind boggling! WE may bid good by to “Nostalgia”, or the simple joy of discovering a lost picture, for ever because nothing is hidden farther from a mouse click!
