Oh, hail NEW facebook

MY biggest dislike about the new Facebook "you don't have your status on top of your profile anymore"

all these days i used twitter AND facebook to update my current status.

from: http://smobot.com/twitter-facebook-blogger-302 
i used twitter because it's best for sharing micro statuses worldwide. But i couldn't forget that my social community is much larger in facebook and makes more sense for me to have my statuses on Facebook as well which all my friends can see. But i hated having to log into TWO individual services (facebook and twitter) just for updating my same status.

Then i tried looking around for any kind of facebook app that would allow my tweets on twitter to come up automatically to my status field on Facebook - but could not find any: the closest match was the official Twitter app for facebook which simply made a post on the wall rather than showing it on top of my profile as my status.

That's the ONLY reason why i went through putting up tweets on twitter and ALSO putting up statuses on FB.

but, now that facebook has taken off the fancy thing of "Status-On-Top-Right-Beside-Your-Name" and has, rather, made your status look like "Yet-Another-Wall-Post-Made-By-Yourself", i might as well stop putting up statuses on Facebook from now on and just put it up only on my twitter - saves me the extra bandwidth and extra time needed to log into yet another social network (meaning facebook) from a device just for updating the same status - after all, my tweets on twitter would automatically be coming as "Yet-Another-Wall-Post-Made-By-Myself" using the twitter app for facebook.

Hail facebook. In all your redesign efforts in the past four years, i never had any complain for having to get accustomed to new looks and interface; while many others went gaa gaa all over the social web 2.0 demanding for "old facebook" "old facebook" "old facebook". But this time in december 2010, i also wanna go gaa gaa - not to bring back the old facebook necessarily, but to bring my status back on top beside my name again.
