My eyes caught the familiar invitation on the bottom of a catalog I brought in with the daily mail. Probably it grabbed my attention because my attention has been on my waning days for Facebook Timeline. Waning… for me to get on board.
The spotlight is definitely on Timeline among my Facebook friends. Just as I was thinking I’d better schedule time to fiddle with it before it fiddles with me, one of my longtime Facebook friends announced she was quitting the whole thing. Apparently she’d gotten notice that her time for Timeline had arrived. She said, “No.”
No more time left to resist, so she quit. She’d had it with Timeline -- especially being forced on people.
That same day another person wrote in a group page inviting 600 friends to protest the whole thing.
“That’s interesting,” I said to myself. “And she is an entertainer.” Her reasoning sounded good. She doesn’t like the layout, and says it reminds people of My Space and doesn’t load well on mobile devices.
