And here's the truly weird thing: There are two interfaces. And you can't choose which you'd like to see -- if your friend has the old good one, you are in luck. If they have the new incomprehensible one, have fun.

What am I missing? It must be something because as young as he is, I know Mark Zuckerberg is way smarter than me.
