I've never quite understood the popularity of Facebook. I don't like the layout, how it sprawls down the page like someone has upended a bucket of text and tiny graphics and let them spill all over the screen.

And I don't get the point: it seems to fall somewhere between blogging, email, news feeds, a wildly unfocused DB and the most tedious conversation you ever had by the office tea-maker.
