I really didn't like it at first but hey, change.
Now I'm thinking - this is a very good way to get more social and have more user interface, which I didn't think was possible with such an amazing site.
I've already gotton used to where my messages are and I do think the layout could be cleaner but there will always be something people don't like and I'm flexible.
Overall, the activity feed is a good way to share art with friends because whenever you fav something, it'll appear in your watchers activity feed. I've already found lots of new art this way.
and some people who don't usually bother updating can just make quick status updates, rather than whole journals.
and they didn't get rid of anything either, just changed it, which is good.
So, grats to DA.
