In light of The Social Network being the #1 one movie in America, today seemed like as good a time as any for Mark Zuckerberg to capitalize on all this attention. Like feeding a baby that’s already full, he just announced three new features that will change the way your waste time on Facebook!
How could it get any better than it already is, you ask?
Well, keep reading!
The biggest change is the way you group your friends. Basically, Facebook is now allowing you to create social cliques — just like high school. Awesome!
You and your 500 million friends will now be able to group friends according to awesomeness and share specific (read: Drunk pictures) information with specific groups, be it work friends, college friends, wives, parole officers, etc.
‘There’s a huge amount of sharing people want to do,’ said Zuckerberg, who said users were inhibited because there weren’t enough privacy settings or people didn’t want to annoy all their friends with information that might not apply to them (via NY Daily News).
Another feature called “Download Your Information” was also introduced. So if you have a particularly amazing day on Facebook, you can now download a log of all your activity of Facebook, including wall posts, photos shared, comments made and messages sent.
And lastly, Facebook introduced a new dashboard that allows you to see all of the apps that you waste your life on all one on one page.
Sounds too good to be true, right?
Frankly, I’m still waiting for the day that I can send an email on Facebook to more than 20 friends at a time. But I guess I shouldn’t be picky.
