ODE TO ANDY ROONEY: My Social Media ‘Pet Peeves’, Part One | Digital Ethos

This detailed statistical analysis that I have conducted on facebook page covers provides an ironclad conclusion.
Alison D. Gilbert's insight:

There was a time in ancient facebook history that 'The Facebook Timelines for Business Page Cover Primer' was the definitive handbook for how to design one's facebook page. The information provided has become so outdated that it adds to my petpeeves about facebook. 

No one followed the guidelines facebook set up and eventually the customer won out. Facebook has continued to modify their guidelines to accomodate its users and to find new ways to charge for their irresistible tools.

It has been known for sometime that images enhance social media the way the talkies transformed the film industry. It was a long time coming but visual design finally caught up to social media. Or did social media finally wake up to visual design? That does not matter. What does matter is that they finally got together and their marriage is one that was made in heaven, for the most part.

Alison D. Gilbert's insight:

It has been a boon to social media that visual data has been integrated into verbal, code based information.

ODE TO ANDY ROONEY: My Social Media ‘Pet Peeves’, Part Two | Digital Ethos | Avant-garde Art, Design & Rock 'n' Roll | Scoop.it

The first part of this blog post detailed my first ‘pet peeve’ about facebook. It involves the new ‘timelines for business pages’ and the page cover designs in particular. You can refer back to that post, Ode to Andy Rooney: My Social Media Pet Peeves, Part One to read it as well. This post, Part Two, will explore my ‘pet peeve’ #2. 

Alison D. Gilbert's insight:

Facebook has become like the shape-shifter of social media. One day's rules are obsolete the next. The face if facebook pages keep changing. Although design plays an important part in this evolution, it has become next to impossible to keep up with these re-incarnations.
Another example of constant change has been the purposes of getting LIKES, the algorhythms, SEO, nothing stays the same. Now there are sponsored posts and all kinds of paid advertising, too.
