The secret to facebook’s product development research revealed!
Lately, facebook has been implementing new features, which look suspiciously like functions that already appear in a very popular micro-blogging platform.
And the response to these implementations have not been received with the overly positive response that was perhaps expected.
Twitter users were outraged.
Facebook users were outraged.
Many people have blogged and suggested that Facebook has merely copied popular elements of other popular sites in an effort to make sure that current FB users remain with the site, as well as attracting users from the other sites to fall back in love with Facebook again.
Whatever the reasons – the main question that I think needs to be asked is this:
“Are Facebook making changes because it will enhance their user experience, or is it just a case of jealousy?”
Change for change sake is never good.
Time will have to tell with this one.
