Too many Facebook Changes in the recent months would have resulted in one of the two things. First being a increase in the on site interaction or engagement , secondly a dip in on site engagement. A recent survey shows up data which clearly illustrates that users are getting bored with so many changes and about 35% of the users spend less time on the site as they did 6 months back. In recent months there have been a heap of Facebook changes, with Facebook changing completely from its looks to its reach .
All the users of the site must be totally aware of all the changes that have been rolled out in the recent months. It all started with Timeline – Giving a new look to your profile , and then came many other changes like ticker, video chat, spotify, new photo viewer, timeline for pages etc. Changes are always accompanied with mixed response.Users seem to have too much of Facebook. Timeline got a mixed response from the users with many even ready to leave Facebook as their privacy was at stake. I personally did not understand their state of mind. Now the question is ” Are so many Facebook changes required ? “.
Facebook is no more just a social networking site , its way beyond that. With competition for survival increasing everyday, Facebook has been trying on so many different things recently. These efforts made by the company are a clear indication to the fact that Facebook is not just gonna limit itself to world of social networking. Leaving aside the changes that Facebook has brought to the site there have been so many other things going around which may be a reason to focus our attention and widen the way we looked at Facebook some months back.
