As someone who is involved with events in Charlotte NC, I am very pleased with how Facebook changed its interface. The change is a huge upgrade indeed. If it still hasn’t reached you profile yet, don’t fret, for it soon will.
You probably have done quite a number of guesses already since I haven’t mentioned it yet right?
Well the wait is over folks!
Facebook has finally added a calendar every time someone wants to look at some events. You know a calendar. That thing composed of pieces of paper hung somewhere on a wall in your house with dates on it. It has actual dates in boxes so you can write things in it so you would be able to see in a chronological order the events that you might not want to miss. It’s been around for eons and its usefulness has been passed down through generations. Apparently these factors still aren’t enough to persuade Facebook to add it a long time ago like they should have done.
Facebook is only the largest social networking company in the world which boasts about a billion user accounts around the world. You’ve read that right, the figures for Facebook has already blown through the roof that it doesn’t concern itself with millions anymore but with billions! Recently Facebook has now added a calendar view in their user interface to better help people managing events. Although it’s been long overdue and has taken a lot of public outcry first; many still gave r positive reviews about the changes they rolled out. The only negativity that people are saying right now is that the update is so recent in fact some accounts might not even feature it yet.
Let us not forget as well that other than the “hackathon” (letting Facebook know that the people are screaming at them for not having it), one important thing that occurred that many consider as the turning point on how Facebook changed its views it Google plus’ introduction of their own event view. Oh what great things competitions brings! I figure this change will do wonders on how fun managing events would be like from this point.
There is a worthwhile event right now I think. It’s the launching of “The Dark Knight Rises “by Christopher Nolan. This would be the first day I’m going to try out this new event layout created by Facebook then. Fun to see how my friends’ reaction to this would be like; this will probably be the first time they would see this upgrade as well.
Glad to see Facebook has already seen the obvious. I know it had taken many of us to tell them what they’re missing, but you know that it’s better late than never. Although for a company is worth many billions of dollars, I don’t think that excuse is valid for them. Try it out if you have it, if not you’ll just have to wait a few. I’m sure you’ll find it pleasant and much more fun to interact with which is really what social networking sites are supposed to do.
