    It would be more like randomizing the yellow pages and being shocked to discover that it makes it pretty much useless.

    I'm baffled that anyone would think that randomizing comments would be something useful, but I agree that saying Facebook is murdering dogs is hyperbole.

    •  And if the Yellow Pages randomized entries... (4+ / 0-)

      ...how long would people keep using it?

      How long would companies keep paying to advertise in it, after frustrated users stopped using it?

      People would "let their fingers do the walking" to someone else's directory book—and the advertisers would follow them.

    •  odds are it's not randomized (0+ / 0-)

      it's in some order based on some calculation that a FB employee came up with.

      how FB comes up with and tests changes is really amazing. there are several articles about it. pretty much they all work on things they want to try, and if they get the green light it goes live on a limited about of pages the next day to see how it works.
