Limerick Ode To Facebook’s Dizzying Changes

Much to my surprise, I’ve found myself defending Facebook lately. For instance, I think its new subscription feature is a great idea. But an even newer change is driving me nuts — the ever-scrolling News Feed on the upper right corner of the screen. The damn thing is making me so dizzy, I can’t even think straight.

Limerick Ode To Facebook’s Dizzying Changes
By Madeleine Begun Kane

Dear Facebook, you’re making me dizzy
Cuz your feed on the right is too busy.
I’ll say this politely:
Your scrolling’s unsightly.
I am now in an A.D.D. tizzy.

(I’ve written two more limericks about Facebook’s annoying new Ticker here.)

UPDATE: Good news! I’ve found a solution to Facebook’s terrible News Ticker problem. You can read all about it here, including a celebratory limerick.

    Thanks Tilly and Shail! I just changed my Facebook account setting from American English to UK English, and it fixed the problem. Of course, I’m sure it’s just a temporary fix till they introduce this horror world-wide. :)
