Facebook shrinks font size, users complain


Last night, Facebook made the smallest of changes to its website, and it’s already catching hell for it. The company ever-so-slightly decreased the font size of items in its news feed and already the community is up in arms. In addition to complaining inside Facebook, a number of users have stormed Twitter to font vent, reports TechCrunch.

This is not the first time Facebook users have gotten¬†ornery¬†about a change. Users have protested almost every single change to Facebook since its inception. Though many are complaining about how small the news feed is today, a few years ago they didn’t want it to exist at all. More recently, the community was up in arms when Facebook made news feed updates relevance-based instead of chronologically listed.

Facebook makes a lot of sketchy moves, especially where it relates to user privacy, but decreasing its font size is not one of them. Luckily, no huge groups have formed to combat this fontastrophe. Are users crying wolf? Or are you generally displeased with the size of your news feed?
