I'm actually kind of angry about this whole thing, really...
I mostly hate it because none of it seems useful at all. Status Updates are basically just mini journals? We could just make an actual journal and say less stuff, lol. It's pointless! And I think their time would have been better spent fixing things that are actually issues for their users, rather than giving us a bunch of useless novelty stuff that pretty much tries to turn DA into facebook. But that's my two cents on it so far.
I don't like to feel like I'm being stalked on DA and having others see what I add to my favorites and stuff like that really makes me feel paranoid about faving anything. So I know one thing I will most likely not be using. I do like that they have some of the updates optionally available as Widgets, so they aren't forced on everyone. That part is nice. Kind of sad, but that's the only useful thing I can see about any of it. (By which I mean, if the only way it's useful is in the way that we can choose not to use it, that should tell you something.)
I'm still going to give it a chance, but I'm just really not liking it so far. Generally speaking... Don't fix what is not broken!
Instead, they should be focusing more on issues that actually need fixing. Like, I don't know, making it so our privacy settings make things actually private. Like when we block someone, make it so they can't see our account or anything about us. It really bugs me that the people I block can still see everything I post and everything I say and do on the site. Very bad. I wish they'd fix our privacy settings so people we block were actually blocked from seeing what we do, not just unable to comment. That makes me feel much less at home here. It doesn't seem safe.
I just don't see why we actually need
another pointless update like this. It's stupid to me. I mean, there are just so many other things they could have actually fixed, instead of giving us unnecessary things. I'm really irritated because I know of a lot of things they should actually be fixing, but instead they're working on things we don't even need. So it's just... extremely irritating. u_u;;
Thank you for your time,
