And how does your bounce rate make you feel?

Alex (that’s right, the Alex) suggested this one. I’m not sure which thought appeals to me more: that I could wander around with dynamic metrics projected over my head, or that administering psychopharmaceuticals to my web server could increase the average visit duration.

Warning: If  visit duration exceeds two hours, consult a sysadmin.

Another week, another massive change to Facebook. I’ve done the developer workaround to get Timeline added to my profile, and now I have to plow through several years of my life to remove hideously embarrassing incidents lend some coherence to it.

And listen, I’m all in favor of them innovating and offering amazing new features to their users. I haven’t decided whether I actually like Timeline yet, but I’m impressed as hell with what they’ve done with it.

That said, hold up, guys. Being a Facebook user these days is like being a hamster belonging to a five-year-old who lives on a diet of Froot Loops and espresso, and has a limitless supply of Habitrail parts: “What the hell… my water bottle was right herea second ago! And the food pellets… what do I click to get to the damn food pellets?!” Before you know it, you have to supplement their diet with Rativan.

Take a breath, Facebook, and let the community catch up.
