  1. Hm. Doesn’t it say something about a site if it needs a “fixer”? : )

    The linked post about Facebook Pages (and why they should be deleted) was also interesting. I didn’t realize there was a dual maintenance issue there.

    • Admittedly, I have a twisted fascination with Facebook “fixes”. I found Ari’s post on deleting Facebook pages to be enligthening too. It makes sense for fans to subscribe to profile pages instead but I wouldn’t have twigged to that if I hadn’t read his post.

  2. Hi timethief –

    Great information. On a side note, I’ve abandoned the FB app on my Android phone and now use Friendcaster to access FB. The experience is much better. Especially when viewing photos. With traditional FB, I could see photos but couldn’t comment and couldn’t see comments.
