Sometimes it can feel like a bit of a hobby to point out the relative shortcomings of Facebook. If you ever want to see just how much time some people have on their hands just watch the comments after Facebook posts a service update either on their blog or their company page. Rarely do people talk about the update. Instead they use it as a platform to complain about what they feel is wrong with the social media giant.

Since these occurrences have happened quite a bit over the years, Wordstream has taken the time to put together an infographic to share many of the sources of the angst and other unkind feelings Facebook’s many starts and stops have generated over the years.

  • Even with all their snafus Facebook still controls the social networking sphere. I think people are too heavily invested in Facebook to just walk away. Their entire social life, both online and off, centers around Facebook.

  • The more important is to evolve. The worst thing would be to stagnate. Like google, Facebook has a massive capacity to develop its platform and it is good for them but also for all of us gravitating around these websites. As you said, I am more impressed by the time people can spend on complaining. It does not help much whereas the update does.
