What the Zuck???
I hope Zuckerberg put down his sword long enough to take care of this! Actually I don't care because I don't use FB. These social sites are time wasters. I can see people in restaurants not even interacting with each other. Instead they are pecking away on their phones FB'ing their pals. Crazy.

And I love the "Security expert Graham Cluely". Sounds like something from Monty Python.

Facebook has a purpose. It's the communications vehicle for people who want to show you pictures of cats and grandkids/kids/selfies. Water seeks its own level.

Re: What the Zuck???
If the color change is an attractive lure for Facebook users then two questions come to mind. First, do the users want a color change for personal viewing pleasure or for broadcasting purposes? Second, is Facebook's concern to not give users access to color themes -- beneficial to the user or Facebook is acting in self-interest and is concerned that multiple colors would harm its brand.

Re: What the Zuck???
Yeah it is like when I was growing up and the relatives or neighbors came over with the slide projector and you had to sit through hours of travel snaps. It was really boring and I happen to love travel. I also like dogs and cats too but I have seen what is on FB and it really is a waste of time.

I agree, and it really ticks me off when I'm the one being ignored. But, I take heart in the fact that the same person is ignoring someone else when (s)he is FB'ing with me.

But, if you work at home, FB is really great in that I can partake in gossip and other social fun even when I'm alone at home at my keyboard - like now.

I am waiting for some serious malware to speard through a Facebook quiz. Think of how many you see in your feed in a given day.

Re: What the Zuck???
Yeah I hate it when I am the one being ignored for the cat update too! Whlie I have trashed FB and other social media, there is a place for it. Unfortunately everything seems to get abused these days. It would be nice to weave FB into the interpersonal interactions that used to take place. The other good thing about FB is that all those stupid chain letters that were formerly sent by email are now in FB.

Re: What the Zuck???
For whatever the criticisms people have about Facebook, the truth is that the company has been able to keep a relatively clean interface.

Remember the hodgepoge that was MySpace? It seems as though people yearn for those days to some degree, which makes this color malware a popular carrot for scammers.

Re: What the Zuck???
I never saw MySpace but I do agree with you about FB. It does look organized to a degree. It seems to be a sequential post list like Twitter. The amount of time spent on FB is staggering judging from the amount of times my girlfriend's phone rings to notify her that another FB post has been made. Now the trend seems to be posting videos. Crazy.

How did they get this info?
How did this Chinese company get this information?  Access to Facebook is blocked in China.
