New Facebook Profile Fun

As is standard practice when any website changes anything, there has been a lot of grumbling regarding Facebook’s recent changes to profile pages. I just can’t wait for the “1 Million Facebook Members Against the New Profile Page” fan page!

And you know what happens when you don’t do what a chain letter says… a piano falls on your head or you die in a fiery plane crash or a dog eats your brains or Kahn implants a mind-controlling eel through your ear.
