NEW YORK (The Borowitz Report) - Facebook's attempt to "simplify" its homepage may have complicated matters for the company, as millions of people with no lives are crying foul over the changes.
Tracy Klugian, whose glaring lack of a life has caused him to embrace similar causes in the past, says that there are "millions of others out there with nothing going on in their lives who are ready to be mobilized."
The first step in such a protest, Mr. Klugian says, is to get those angry with Facebook to show their support "by making the ultimate sacrifice: changing their Twitter avatars."
"As of this morning, I changed by Twitter avatar to the Facebook logo with a line through it," he says. "It wasn't easy for me to change it from my 'I'm With Coco' avatar, but that's how strongly I feel about this."
Mr. Klugian hopes that the anti-Facebook protesters on Twitter will find solidarity with thousands of Iranians protesting their government tomorrow on the anniversary of the Iranian revolution.
"We hope the Iranians will take some time out from their protests and join ours," he says. "As bad as the Iranian government is, I'm pretty sure what Facebook has done to its homepage is way worse." More here.
