MikeK: Facebook Changes? Meh

Facebook.com founder Mark Zuckerberg smiles at Facebook headquarters in Palo Alto, Calif., in this 2007 AP file photo. Facebook, the social network, is tweaking the home pages of its 750 million users, much to the chagrin of some very vocal folks. The world's largest online social network is expected to announce even more changes on Thursday, when it holds its annual f8 conference in San Francisco for developers who create games and other applications for its site.

MikeK: Is it heresy to say I kinda don't care about the Facebook changes that seem to be angering everyone? It's a software product built on an eyeball advertising model that will either be interesting enough to sustain eyeballs or not. If not, something else will replace it. I spent about 13 minutes on Myspace 5 or 6 years ago and it wasn't for me. Google Plus hasn't connected for me either though I have been on it. I'm not that emotionally invested in any of them. The next billion dollar idea is waiting in the weeds somewhere to spring itself, and I'm intrigued at what that will be (hope it's mine).

Question: What do you make of all the recent Facebook changes?
