Facebook Timeline Forced

That is not fair when there are humans who like choices in everything, and facebook can never be an exception. You cannot force the users to stick to the new design every few months once.

Facebook Timeline is Slow

People are not accessing from free WiFi provided in Facebook Headquarters. Unfortunately, they got to use it from their home and that to costs money the bandwidth they use every month. Internet is not free and unlimited everywhere. Facebook Timeline takes some extra seconds to load, than the old facebook page. There are millions still using 256 kbps and 512 kbps internet speed to surf the web, and facebook timeline takes more time to load.

  1. I initially didn’t like timeline but starting to get used to it.  In your article you mention that landing pages are gone, that’s not entirely true.  You can no longer get a non fan to go to a landing page when they are in Facebook but you can direct them to a landing page from other sources.  So for example you have a link on your website to a Facebook page.  You can direct them to a landing page.  So they are still important!  

    1. Hello Ian, thanks for your comment. The old landing page styles were looking great really to promote something new and to convey some important message as well. The pages are still there but dont get attention like before. The direct link method can suite well as you have mentioned.

      Another main reason i hate timeline is because of the page load time.
