We were told to prepare ourselves. We were told Facebook is changing. And this is supposedly a good thing, because as Ben Parr of Mashable says “Facebook’s goal is to become the social layer that supports, powers and connects every single piece of the web, no matter who or what it is or where it lives.”
And now, D-Day is upon us. Facebook is changing. Again. And I for one am underwhelmed.
But perhaps I'm looking at this the wrong way. Perhaps this really is the next step in human evolution. Perhaps this where human society is going.
Because the new Facebook makes one thing clear: Their ultimate goal is to have Mark Zuckerberg's face in everything you do.
When you chat with your friends, Mark Zuckerberg will be there. When you kiss your girlfriend, Mark Zuckerberg will be there. When you look up the price of kumquats on your smartphone, yes, that's Mark Zuckerberg. When you squat over the toilet, again, Mark Zuckerberg. Facebook – and by extension Mark Zuckerberg – will be all knowing.
Welcome to the social media future. And no, I can't decide if this is supposed to be funny or not.
Anyway, because of this momentous change I've created the image above in honor of our new societal master.
