There's no indication how those tools will actually look or which aspects of the 50 settings with 170-plus options will be simplified. Some are guessing there will be fewer options, but will they be effective? Users are skeptical at best . MSNBC.com quoted one this way:
Every time Facebook makes changes, things seem to get worse ...
And though several thousand have quit or have promised to quit the service (including Newsweek's Daniel Lyons, of Fake Steve Jobs fame), the fact remains that Facebook has hundreds of millions of users.
Will the departure of thousands really make that much of an impact? I wish it could, but in the grand scheme of things, probably not.
We'll see what tomorrow holds. Stay tuned.
