Facebook isn't exactly making a lot of friends this week. The social media giant unveiled a bunch of new changes. Many of Facebook's 750 million users "dislike" the facelift.
Catherine Bertorelli told News 7 "I don't like the Facebook changes at all."
"I feel like they are trying to make it easier to interact with people but it's getting really confusing," said Andrie Lydick.
Carrie Boswell told News 7 "I do not like the changes. I don't really understand what's going on."
The changes include pictures that are bigger. There's also a scrolling real-time feed of friend's posts and comments. It's located on the right and is similar to what you find on twitter.
Some say the changes are helpful. Ashton Witt told News 7 "it makes my life a lot easier because now I can look at the status' I want to read instead of the status' I don't want to read."
Others find the changes confusing. "I just don't like the changes, the weird status thing on the side and then the advertisements in the corner I can't look at the most recent stuff anymore. It's just weird to me," said Ember Fulson.
News 7 posted a question on its Facebook page asking users if they hated or loved the changes. Out of the nearly 200 comments, most told us they don't like the facelift.
Many told us they won't be complaining about this by next week.
Amanda Rucker told News 7 "I don't mind them, just getting used to it."
"They're not a big deal to me," said Kirsten Bledsoe.
Facebook reportedly made the changes to compete more with Twitter and Google+, Google's social networking site it launched this week.
But some say Facebook needs to be more like Facebook. "It's like they are trying to combine all these different social media's into something that's already an important social media," said Ember Fulson.
Facebook announced even more changes Thursday. The company unveiled a new free music service. Users will have the chance to listen to the music their friends are listening to.
We asked users if they are angry enough to sign off of Facebook. It doesn't seem likely.
Jasmine Greene told News 7 "No I can't do that. I can't give it up."
