    Well I must say it's very nice to have a Facebook with a lot less rubbish on it now. No stupid applications just basic interaction with friends while photos and videos are the only "extras".

    Very low bandwidth, you can only upload a 1gig video It's not too bad actually, makes a lot of sense if you ignore the videos!

    I like it. I used to type in m.facebook.com if on a slow network, but this is much nicer. Now all they need to do is work on facebook chat. It is the most annoying thing about facebook!

    The countless silly apps is the most annoying thing about Facebook.

    About time. I've always thought they should do a different interface for more professional people to use and for easier access from a mobile device. The standard design is so slow and tacky.

    NO IT IS NOT!

    That's exactly the sort of useless tat we're trying to escape from.

    (you are being sarcastic right?)

    Not this time, makes a change really.

    Pokes I generally don't mind, and sometimes quite like, depends on who it's from
