It’s official. Facebook will be removing the word “is” from status updates. No longer will we be limited to passive forms of verbs when sharing our status with our friends. Now it’s all about action people! Booyah!
[UPDATE] As of Thursday, Dec. 13, and after weeks of teasing and waiting (and waiting, and waiting), the removal of “is” has finally become a reality. Thanks, Facebook. I know you’ve had a few other things going on lately with petitions against you, threats of lawsuits, and your CEO making dumb comments. I’m glad you still managed to take the time out to remove those two little letters. It must have been a struggle, but I really appreciate it.
It took them long enough!
