But I'm not interested in seeing pictures of babies and self involved selfies! I want more news and interesting subjects from around the world. But spare me friends and family. It's never really friends but more like annoying acquaintances.

I'm much more active on two private networking platforms and have been for months -- compared to Facebook. FB is losing my interest, maybe this move will help it.

I don't think this should be their decision, it should be the users decision what he preferres to see and to be updated about...there are people who don't use Facebook for private reasons and only for work!

I see my friends, we talk, we text... I really don't need to know what they had for breakfast!
On Facebook I enjoy special interest groups, pages related to these, and an eclectic mix of news. I especially love the random bits of info about Science, tech, Art, and dogs... Where else would I have discovered Humans of New York, Bangor Maine Police Department, and Women After 50? Not to mention dogs and cats doing silly things?

Why? Greed! Don't buy what they're saying. Not true. Now they can milk our businesses so that we have to pay to promote our posts. The business pages that we've spent years to cultivate and pay for more followers. Disgusting.
