Facebook frees users from present-tense pickle

Facebook users are rejoicing as the social networking site has removed the “is” from the status formula “John Smith is”, meaning users are free to enter their own verb of choice after their name.

The status bar allows users to notify their friends of what is most keenly on their mind, and a groundswell of opinion had risen against the restrictive “is”.

Users are now free to write anything after their name, such as “John Smith is going to banned from Facebook”, “John Smith has been banned from Facebook” and “John Smith was sacked for using Facebook”.
