re: What Facebook Should Learn From George Lucas
Hi Frank,

Thanks for the kind words!

Yes, I can't imagine that there wouldn't be some sort of a connection given the uniqueness of our last name. Heck, I'm still trying to find out if we're related to the folks that own Villa LaSusa in the Carabbean. LOL

Would love to get in touch to discuss family connections -- feel free to drop me a line at tom.lasusa@ubm.com

One thing that's driving me crazy in the new Facebook is that they keep suggesting that I subscribe to employees of Facebook instead of to people who would be better matches for me to social network with. What's that about? (see attached)

LOL Thanks BG4ME. I am, if nothing else, cognizant of the alternative view ;-)

Best,

re: What Facebook Should Learn From George Lucas
This is a great piece, Tom! I love your comparison to the "Star Wars" movies. When Facebook first rolled out the latest changes, I was talking with a colleague who said the early response was just people reacting badly to change, which people are wont to do. However, I have seen and heard nothing but negative response in the days following. I think this is more than people just having to get the new interface. I'm pretty flexible about this kind of thing, but I feel confused when I'm on the page now (Wait, where's the scroll bar?) and definitely have curbed my usage a bit. It will be interesting to see how Facebook responds--or doesn't.

On the flip side of the argument, there's a very funny meme that's been circulating today (on Facebook in particular). You can find it here:
