      1. Yes, I must say Facebook is gtntieg pretty interesting right now. On top of what you have pointed out here, they rolled out two major changes this week and could care less what we think about it. I can tell you right now Facebook wants to be the next Google. I do have issues with Google, too, but I still agree with you, Facebook pushing you to do something is very concerning. It will be interesting to see what they do next because I believe these guys are just gtntieg started. Dont know if that’s a good or bad thing yet. But these abrupt changes that were made this week and what you just pointed out bother me.Ericka
