At first I used to like it as a social gaming site. I was finding kong’s former user’s profile appearance good. Profiles were simple and pretty. All users’ badges, awards, favorite games etc were organized and shown beutifully in a profile.
But now? Kongregate pathetically tries to become a second facebook. Profiles have this idiotic “Activity Feed” that is filling up with crap, informing about every single thing the user does (friends they add, badges they earn, games they like). And below each of them there is the “Like” button. Like anyone cares that I got a medium badge in Learn To Fly, or that i added Don’t Shit Your Pants in my favorites.
Do you really think that users’ primary object in kong is to socialize? Or do you believe that with your changes you can become Facebook? No one even notices the “Like” buttons you made under each crap on “Activity Feed”. And why should they do?
Nothing in our profiles reminds that this is a gaming site anymore. I was about to keep my profile private, so that I hide this garbage from the Eyes of the World. But now I just want to have this message seen.
