Why the hell FB doesn’t give us the option just to turn the damn things off is beyond me.
This is the root of the problem. It’s not so much that Facebook is constantly changing; it’s that you have no choice in the matter. When one of the Zuckerminions decides it’s time to roll out a Hot New Feature, you can’t opt in; you’ve already got it, whether you like it or not. Often you can’t opt out, either, or if you can, you have to navigate through ten layers of menus to find the appropriate box to check or uncheck. Then, a couple of weeks later, another update gets released, and you discover that all of your settings have reverted to their previous values or disappeared entirely. Now that Google+ is ramping up, this kind of thing may well spur a mass exodus from FB.
