YES: Be more interactive on Facebook and Facebook may begin to look a bit more like it used to. Fewer ads more friends.
It's NOT ALL GOOD in the world of social media, Facebook and Twitter. And while Twitter has come a long way, they continue to stumble forward like a giant in-search-of it's next meal. We could hope that next acquisition and destruction would be beneficial to us or to the Twitter functionality. For the most part, it's merely a financial play: either Twitter is trying to KILL something from becoming a threat, or MERGE something into Twitter in attempts to find the PROFIT CENTER.
But as the services and add-ons to Facebook (apps, games, plugins) get more and more power hungry, the servers are having to work harder to deliver a single page, even if that page does not use any fancy tricks. So now Facebook is becoming frustratingly slow. And it's not just me that's noticing. A Google search of "facebook performance problems" reveals quite a bit of data suggesting the growth issues are not new. But when the numbers of users become surreal (500 million) you can't just throw more servers and hard drives at the problem.
