Doug's Mailbag: Facebook Facelift

Readers share their thoughts on Facebook after its recent design changes:

I had never thought Facebook had any redeeming values and these new features push my opinion further (if that was possible) in that direction. Meanwhile this generation that is supposed to be so interested in being 'green' is wasting massive amounts of electricity on manufacturing and running the massive servers and network resources needed to keep this waste-of-space working.

Call me an old timer; I just don't understand why people want to expose every element of themselves in a medium that is forever. I suppose personal privacy is becoming a thing of the past.

If you look back, its really nothing else then a BBS board on steroids, so its nothing new, but the difference is that anyone can use it with ,no training required!! I personally have never used it, nor will I ever, ,but I do believe that it is a magnet for every creepy person out there, that owns a computer, and if you have children, then you got to keep an eye on what's going on.
