for W3c validation
I just logged into Facebook tonight and was PLEASANTLY surprised as to what I saw. They are asking for feedback and willing to listen to their users. This announcement awaited me when I logged in-
Before we expand…
I want to clear up some rumors and ask for your feedback.
Right now a lot of people want their friends to use Facebook, but they can’t get on. Soon, we’re planning on letting these people register for regional networks.
I know a lot of you are worried about this and how it changes the site. Honestly, it shouldn’t change much for you. College networks will remain exclusive to people from those colleges. High school and work networks will remain exclusive as well. Only your friends and other people in your networks can see your profile. This is what makes Facebook different, and we’re not changing it.
From reading a lot of your messages, it seems like some of you want more separation. Do you want to be completely invisible to people who aren’t in a college or high school? Do you want to make sure they can’t message or poke you? We like hearing from you. Please send us your thoughts on how we can make this work for you.
And just to clear some other things up: we’re not putting up more banner ads, we’re not charging anyone, we’re not letting people put random HTML in their profiles, and we’re not selling your information. Facebook is about increasing information flow and connecting people, not these things.
Please send us your thoughts here.
Here is a company that “gets it” unlike Myspace. Sure, facebook made a mistake– but they made it right with their users and addressed the concerns by being open and honest. They’ve won my complete support again by taking actions such as this. Keep up the good work!
