Okay, I've accepted that there are many (apparently over 1 million) people on there who are pretty upset about the "new" design. I would call them a bunch of whiners and call it a day, but whiners tend to give up after a while. I respect the devotion to this absurd use of activist energy. What I am
On December 15th, if we are still on the new facebook, let's all not login for one day ! But just before let's all put the pic of the group as profile picture to show that we are part of the facebook blackout !One day?! You can't tear yourself away from Facebook for more than 24 hours for something that you say you care about? Besides that, one day isn't going to mean anything to them even if everyone does it. A month? That may hurt advertising a little. But a day? They might have to switch over to wiping with $50 bills instead of $100 for the day, but not much else.
I'm as big a fan of ridiculous as anyone. I say go ahead and be ridiculous. It gives me something to rant about. But why not be ridiculous for a longer time? Commit to the ridiculousness. Embrace your ridiculousity. Wield your mighty sword of absurdity over your head and strike down those oppressive website administrators! March to the ocean of version 1.0, you Superpoking Gandhis. Sit down on the seat that is your Logout button, oh Rosa Parks of the social networks.
Commit to it though. You're making us all look... ridiculous.
