Facebook Friendship Pages

Facebook frienship pagesHave you taken a look at the new Facebook Friendship Pages yet?  They are kind of fun except when they are a privacy concern.

They really don’t show anything you can’t see with Facebook to begin with.  You can look at the history of your wall posts, events, pictures between you and a Facebook friend.  That’s kinda fun.

But then you can see the relationship between to of your other Facebook friends (again you do have to be friends with both of them to see this information).  But that allows you to start stalking them a little.  Are they better friends?  Who are their mutual friends?  What parties did they attend together that you didn’t even get an invite to?  This could get ugly!

Take a look at my video and see how you access Friendship Pages and what you can see.  What do you think?  Good or bad? Is this a privacy concern?  Leave me a comment and let me know!

You can’t opt out of the the Friendship Pages but you can make sure that you are only showing your information to Friends Only – check your Privacy Settings under the Account button in the upper right corner.

    Great as always. I had heard about this one a little while back and was able to go see it in action on my pages. I am not sure what to think about it yet.

  • I think the feature is good as reference tool. “Didn’t I tell X about Y… the other day or was that someone else?”…then you can check your conversations. Besides that, it’s a “nosy tool” where people can peek in on conversations. Setting privacy options is also key, as you mentioned.

    Entertaining and informative video, great job!

  • Thanks Jesse – I think it does help when you wanted to see the history of your conversations. But I think it’s also very nosy! Thanks for stopping in!

  • Sheesh Tim, I was very negligent in thanking you for stopping in and saying hello! Thanks for your comments as always – much appreciated!
