It’s that time of year again. Facebook dumped a bunch of changes on us unsuspecting users, then proceded to pre-announce even greater changes coming soon. Facebook has changed so much over the years, it’s almost hard to recognize the original site as the same service.
It seems lately that most major web apps have been bitten by the update fever bug. Gmail and the whole slew of Google Apps have recently gotten a massive redesign, Twitter looks more like a full app by the day, and even Microsoft keeps tweaking its aging internet properties. But Facebook is the one app that keeps firing on all cylinders, and it seems that you can hardly keep up with all the changes they throw at us.
It’s not all bad. I personally like the new style chat, and the live updates can be rather interesting. So what do you think? Are you excited to see more changes in the world’s most popular social network, or would you rather them leave it the same? Have you still not gotten used to the last changes by the time they updated it?
Then, of course, there is this:
In this Quick Look, we’re highlighting JFBConnect. The developer describes JFBConnect as a popular social networking app for the Joomla CMS that provides complete Facebook integration for your site.

It comes with a detailed installation guide and support for 6 or 12 months, including all updates.

Facebook held a keynote at their f8 conference yesterday, demonstrating a bunch of new stuff, most importantly Timeline, the new face for profiles. Timeline is changing Facebook’s approach to user-centric pages drastically. It’s concentrating on showing a view of a person’s life, as shared through Facebook and a bunch of associated apps. I’ve been playing with the developer release of Timeline since it was announced, and have got to say, I love it!
The design changes Facebook is currently undergoing are fantastic, and look great on the site, but we shouldn’t forget the humble, dorm-based beginnings of the world’s largest social network. As the company has grown with more and more (and more and more and more) members, the design has seen many refinements. We’re going to have a look at it’s design timeline today, to get a glimpse of where it started and where it’s headed, at least for now.
Change is good. It helps keep things fresh and keeps boredom away. But too much of anything is good for nothing and that holds good for changes too. So, the folks at Facebook have been quietly busy and rolled out few notable updates to the World’s largest social network. At times I think if there is a wager between Google and Facebook to see who rolls out more updates in a calender year!
I don’t use a lot of features of Facebook, just like thousands of others. But from changing the way the feed looks like to sharing and privacy, everyone will feel the changes for sure this time. Predictably, there are loud voices complaining about yet another change, but at the end of the day, these new additons make Facebook more fun to use.
Getting things scheduled isn’t productivity. Getting them all done at the right time is. I do have a scheduling system to keep up with all of my blogging assignments for a couple weeks at a stretch. I rarely get them all done on time, but at least the schedule and the bleeding number of things that rollover to the next day everytime I miss working pushes me to put some more effort.
So a demanding boss, a nagging secretary, or a paycheck forces us to maintain a schedule for our professional life. But what happens to your personal and social commitments? Usually they get pushed aside to make way for the sake of a career. Of late, I have been trying to find work-life balance and I found feedCal. The web app automatically takes your social feeds and puts them in your calendar. Join me as I evaluate if the web app can help me be more social.
