Are we becoming bored of Facebook? Have we suffered one big change too far?

Facebook's first earnings report as a public company had solid numbers, but in the end it landed with a thud - much like its rocky initial public offering two months ago.

At its lowest ebb the value of shares fell a full 24 per cent since the social network floated itself on the stock market, earning itself the accolade of second-worst performing technology offering of 2012.

A recent survey by the American Customer Satisfaction Index indicated that only 61 per cent of Facebook users are satisfied with the social network. We take a look at some of Facebook's recent big changes and ask has our beloved social network reached a plateau. Is the writing on the wall?
