In a survey of over 1,000 people conducted by Sodahead, a social-voting based site,
around 86 percent of the Facebook audience said they strongly disliked the changes that*the site*recently underwent.

Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg said at the F8 technology conference Thursday
that the changes will help build "a completely new class of social apps"
allowing users to share every facet of their lives on the site, according to CNET.

"[b]All those activities people perform with these apps
--listening to a Bjork tune, reading about same-sex marriage laws,
cooking Arroz con Pollo, running four miles, donating to Amnesty International--[/B
will be stored permanently and made accessible (if the user allows it)
on a greatly enhanced profile page that will essentially become a remote-control autobiography,"
wrote Wired's Steven Levy on the new updates.
