Once upon a time — February, 2009 — Facebook was the single most powerful community-building tool I’d ever seen. Over the course of 2008, I watched it reconnect a group of friends — day by day, person by person — that had last been fully connected two decades ago. It culminated in an amazing post-Christmas reunion party organized entirely via Facebook.
Now, with the new Home Page, Facebook has broken its own back. It currently lays on the ground like a wounded bird, reduced to retardedly chirping over and over again: “What’s on your mind? What’s on your mind? What’s on your mind? What’s on your mind?”
But it can be fixed. Easily. And I know how.
