This is just Facebook trying to be Twitter!
Nobody wants it.
Nobody likes it.
There is simply no rhyme or reason behind this change. All it does is make the site look a million times worse and make it far more difficult to navigate.
Why do we always have to just accept these completely unnecessary and utterly ridiculous (not to mention seriously ugly) changes that just annoy everybody?
Just let the users decide and you will see how few people actually make the switch to this new absolutely abysmal format that EVERYBODY HATES!
I don't know a single person who likes the new format. It is absolutely awful. Lots of people are literally looking for a different social media to use once they force the new one on us.
Facebook - For once just listen to your users!
LET US CHOOSE TO KEEP THE OLD FORMAT!
