Timeline
I would be much happier with the app if zuck stopped screwing with my timeline. No rhyme or reason to it's chronology. The real pisser is when you log in, or return from reading a link and the whole thing changes with the content you were just looking at shuffled into god knows where. Whomever came up with that brilliant trick deserves a good punch in the nose, maybe two.

Re: Timeline
What I would really love, is an EASY way to go stealth on FB messenger so that each time I open FB to surf someone "sees' me and wants to chat.  None of the options for appearing "offline" actually work the way I want them to.  To me, they should be completely separate entities.  Sometimes I don't feel like talking, you know?

Where would you want to go?
Maybe the Facebook Teleportation station can zip me past Windows 10....or just to the South of France for a week, in season

If only Facebook's business model weren't based on identifying you...

Re: Timeline
A stealth mode on the FB messenger, now that is what I would also like to see. Mostly what I would love instead is they made secure blocking possible on facebook and if they could improve the community standard guidelines.

Advertising
I understand advertising supporting a website such as this, but should I have to close the exact same video ad on each and every page of a thirteen page article? No, I don't think so.

The one that will be a hit
Instagram based travel app is a great one. Its needed, its doable, it will work and it will be a hit. Facebook has all the components of this recipe. David you should charge facebook for this idea.

Accident or ?
"When Facebook accidentally sent out a message early this week"

Hehehe ,maybe it wasn't so accidently, just think about it how much social interact you can create with such messages.
