(Old) Facebook is better than porn!

Part of the findings of Hitwise geek-supremo Bill Tancer in his new book is that searches for porn have halved in a decade (to around 10%), while social network searches continue to increase. Hopefully more to do with there being lots of great stuff online now that wasn’t there a decade ago, rather than just social networks being totally dominant. 

But while reading about this on Mashable (and deciding I don’t like their new look), I saw their story about the seven million plus people who are in Facebook groups agains the new Facebook – it’s the only way Gen Y knows how to protest! As if we were in any doubt, the status of Facebook has been confirmed by this redesign, I can’t see the NYT and BBC amongst hundreds of others covering the new look of any other site.

I’m actually starting to get used to new Facebook, but maybe not everyone will, and porn can win back fans from those people who just can’t be entertained by the new Facebook!
