We think Facebook's new friendship pages sound like a really great tool
for all the creepy stalkers out there.
Here's what Facebook engineer Wayne Kao had to say about Friendship Pages on the company's blog last week:
One of my favorite Facebook moments is browsing photos from friends in the News Feed after they’ve begun a new relationship, gotten engaged or gotten married. It gives me a fun and meaningful glimpse of the friendship between two people I know…
Today I’m excited to be launching Friendship Pages. They contain the public Wall posts and comments between two friends, photos in which both are tagged, Events they RSVP’d for together and more. You’ll be able to see a friendship page if you are friends with one of the people and have permission to view both people’s profiles.
Here's what Jared Newman at PCWorld had to say about the feature:
"Sometimes, the creepiest things about Facebook are also the most compelling.”
We couldn't have said that better ourselves.
For people who are more focused on the "creepy" aspect of the feature as opposed to the "compelling" aspect, you can express your concerns on the "Opt Out of the FB Friendship Feature" Facebook page that has been created, which now has 914 people who "like it."
What do U think? Are U intrigued by this feature? Or just creeped out?
