Is sick. I love it. I realize this is probably a very unpopular opinion, but please consider how amazing it is:
1) I don't have to check everyone's profile constantly as all updated information and pictures are made aware to me.
2) I know who is friends with who, or what groups people have joined or left.
On another note, the people who are against the change are most likely people unwilling to try new things. It hasn't even been 2 days and people want "Old Facebook" back. I say bah-humbug. Keep Newsfeed.
