[BREAKING] Facebook adds sidebar

By Mohnish On July 16, 2011 Under News, Social Networking

I just noticed the sidebar on Facebook. Don’t know how many of you’ll have got it as yet, but it is one of the worst update Facebook has ever got.  The sidebar basically gets all the real time updates and online contacts you message the most in the sidebar. This is useful to contact people whom you message the most on Facebook/contacted recently or check for updates real time. It’s fast, light and very useful for Facebook users (or stalkers?). You can read more about the Facebook side bar here. Apart from all of this, you can’t see who all are online now.

I guess Facebook is trying really hard to compete with Google+ but this is nothing compared to Google+ in the long run.  Honestly, EXTREMELY ANNOYING. Let’s not compare both the platforms, because if we do, Google+ wins hands down. Facebook sidebar on the other hand is something which I do not want to see on my Facebook home page. It’s just an addition to my home page which was already clutter, Facebook just added to the mess! Also, let us not forget that Google+ launched recently and has only 10 million users, which is a very small number compared to Facebook’s 750 million. Also, I’m sure Google isn’t looking at numbers in the first month itself. We could expect some big numbers and features rolling out on Google+ by Thanks Giving.

Until the Facebook and G+ war goes on, I shall take some popcorn and sit back to watch the fireworks. Let me know what you think about the Facebook sidebar in the comments.

    Well it’s the end of September, and Facebook just did ANOTHER major update, and you just wrote this in July!!! They took away the way your status updates from friends appear in your news feed. They also made some sort of weird Subscribers lists for your friends and THEIR FRIENDS for when you post stuff. It’s getting all confusing and I know you have to update sites to make them current, but major changes every 3 months is getting old!!!! 🙁

    One of the best money making ideas recently is to participate in a community banking. Since banks are loaning us our own money, we don’t need such an intermediate. People now help each other with money directly. You can earn 10-50% montly. More information by searching in google: income plan com

    No doubt. G+ has and will always rule over facebook. Google will continue to grow while FB will slowly die off…eventually.
