I'm not a fan of the platform - the *only* thing they have going for them is the Network Effect... Aand despite being one of the richest (most exploitative and generally risible) corporations in history, their software is still pretty unusable.
@seven indeed. I can't help thinking that some of the bad design is actually good in FB's opinion, as maybe their tests show better "stickiness" among pig-headed posters (like me :) ) if the tools kinda suck.
@seven I suspect you're right... although I suspect that they have quite a range of audience personae for whom they cater...
@lightweight Yes...much like Microsoft. When the end goal is money and power, all other considerations (e.g., usability) are secondary.
