CNN Commenter MarkM87 said, "How you dress reflects you personality. When you look good, you feel good. Zuckerberg is obviously an incredibly boring person with no personality."
Bruno Domingues disagrees. "Funny, I do the same thing. Because I don't like to have to think about what I am going to wear so when I find something I like, I buy more than one piece. Just very practical people I guess."
4. Redefined private
In short: The Next Web reported Thursday that Facebook "confirmed scanning users' private messages for shared links to Web pages with Like buttons, so it can increase the number of corresponding Likes for those pages." Facebook's response: "We did recently find a bug with our social plugins where at times the count for the Share or Like goes up by two, and we are working on a fix to solve the issue now. To be clear, this only affects social plugins off of Facebook and is not related to Facebook Page likes. This bug does not impact the user experience with messages or what appears on their timelines."
An update and further explanation are at The Next Web.
The reaction: Spke posted, "Who cares, exactly what gmail does to serve ads"
"This has to make you wonder what other stats FB is inflating," @rk tweeted.
5. Offered to promote personal posts -- for a $7 fee
In short: Users in the U.S. can promote their personal posts for a $7 per-post fee. "When you promote a post it is placed higher in the news feed so your friends and subscribers are more likely to notice it," Facebook wrote in a blog post. The reaction: "$7 to promote you posts? There's a Zucker born every minute," wrote sapient69.
Many suggested cutting down on the number of "fake friends."
Lisztman wrote, "I don't see a problem with someone paying to advertise. The sidebar does that very nicely. What I'd rather see? A mechanism for the subscriber (that would be me) to push certain post-ers, or friends, up or down. I believe that what I see on MY newsfeed should be what I myself wish to see -- not what someone else thinks I need."
The reaction on the CNN Facebook page was a capitalized and often heavily punctuated "NO!"
"Hell no I'd just Google+," wrote Kevin E Poindexter.
"If that happens I will use MySpace," wrote Michelle Marie Denison.
Justin, I hope you're listening.
