Here’s the thing, lately I’ve been ranting over a few features in some systems I stumble across. For one, it is true that a hindrance to innovation and advancement is due to a group of individuals or a single person that is adamant to change. Well, there are also times when they are adamant for a reason; for instance, the previous one or the previous implementation or setup of something was way easier and user-friendly.
To cite a scenario, there’s a feature that most of us are comfortable with and we can live with it and we are always open to improvements to that implementation. Sure, the devs / development team have the utmost freedom to improve that technology; that is, under their definition of ‘improvement’. What if, that so-called ‘innovation’ they present doesn’t work with everyone, or worse; it doesn’t work for anyone at all.
This is just me, but I’d like to start pointing out features and ‘improvements’ that need to be rolled-back for the following reasons: usability and ease of use. Not all features work for everyone but at least the idea of ‘roll-back’ is always something to look forward to just at times we come across woes and disappointments with a feature update.
For now, I’ll point out rollback #1. There are also some rollbacks in other different systems that I would like to point out but I will post them here as soon as I stumble upon them.
Before: Facebook is one of the biggest social-networks right now, and their chat was one of the most innovative and most useful features as of late. Being able to talk with everyone, individual or group, it could never be more convenient than this.
After: The moment they updated tho, it became more tedious to search for the people you want to talk to and, most of us miss the old ‘scroll’ as to find someone or just to waste some time.
If possible, roll it back please?
