... and we'll see the return of some iVillagers who didn't get used to the upgrades here but loved FB instead.

I didn't even bother to try reading my News Feed once I saw that "Most Recent" wasn't an option for me. I checked my notifications and then clicked on the game I play. The messed-up feed can wait for a time when I have some patience and I'm less annoyed that the site has changed again, each time in a worse way!

Okay, venting over! Time for positivity!

Hehehe Becca I was going to post in the group that anyone hating facebook really badly could always rejoin us here in the land of iVillage ;) I have enjoyed facebook since joining, but the change in the last few hours may have forced me to leave it...joining you in prayer that the group finds their way "home"

Hehehe..i kind of was thinking the same thing about the change. I am uploading pics today because my friend in florida wants to see the ones from our day together. But facebook was already on my nerves in some ways and now seeing how chaotic it looks makes me less likely to spend time playing on there.

And the thing i love about ivillage since the upgrades (other than the amazing quick reply) is that you still control a lot of your settings (like how many messages to view and stuff)

My discontent has been brewing for some time, but I didn't want to lose contact with a couple of groups. Usually I check them, scan my News Feed once a day (sometimes skipping a day) and play a game. The game wouldn't load this morning, so I came here and checked Google+ as well.

(This comes on the day Google+ apparently doesn't require invites anymore. They might have a ton of people checking them out instead of getting used to FB's changes!)

Yep, I'm a big one for setting things up my way. I put the posts-per-page at the max a day or two after the upgrades and haven't gone back!

I did see a comment in fb that the csp may need to find a new" home". I hope they decide to return here :)

You can't select 'Most Recent' anymore & that stinks. You have to scroll waaaaaaaaaay down past "Top stories" & you might find the most recent section. There is a fix someone posted & I reposted where you make an "Everyone" list & put everyone in it. Then when you look at that list it will put updates in chronological order. It took a few minutes to do but works okay. Fortunately the groups aren't screwed up really. I hope some do migrate back to IV- a few of them have started to ;)

I also bookmarked that spot when you make the list and click on it so it saves a step from having to go to the home page and select group. It may only save a little time but heck, i'm lazy :p

I think I'm not as much of a fb "veteran" as some so the changes aren't affecting me yet (?)
