Facebook has left 94 per cent of its users, participating in a new poll, facing disappointment after making changes to its services.
The social-networking giant received the green signal from only six per cent of nearly 800,000 members who cast their votes.
Facebook had previously announced the makeover on every member’s homepage and changes were being introduced to a small percentage of its expanding 175 million members every day to prevent crashing the system.
The new layout included increased friend limit, real-time chatter, a rephrasing of the status update question, along with being able to follow profile pages of celebrities, organisations and causes.
But the free access website seemed to have failed in impressing its users with the changes.
"Pretty much sucks. Better before," the Sydney Morning Herald quoted user Nik McCarthy as saying.
Mark Wysocki said there was "way too much information," urging the website to "bring back the old style."
Chanel Chartrand added: "Hard to navigate. Really don't like it."
However, Mara Soriano, who liked the changes, said: "I think it's fantastic.”
