Do you like looking at the profiles of people you don't know that well on Facebook? Of course you do, because we're all sick and it's fun. One
wrinkle: there's now a list of everything you search for on FB.
Starting today, Facebook says:
In addition to your other activity, you'll be able to see the searches you're making on Facebook. Just as you can choose to delete any of your posts,
you can use the same inline control on Activity Log to remove any of your searches at any time. It's important to remember that no one else can see
your Activity Log, including your search activity.
Now Facebook knows when your stalking your exes... or anyone else.
It's not retro active, so don't have a panic attack:
A Facebook rep tells us the feature is currently rolling out to users, but you should be seeing it soon.
That last part is important: this is information that's only accesible by you (and Facebook). It's also not retroactive, because that would give the
entire Internet a simultaneous panic attack. But if you've got something to hide, just make sure nobody sees that list—or delete your search
history, which is an easy option. But it's an option you'll have to keep tabs on atop the rest of your incriminating search history. This stuff is
starting to pile up!
Just another drip in the steady drip of our eroding privacy.
Yet another reason to quit facebook if you haven't already.
you'll be able to see the searches you're making on Facebook. Just as you can choose to delete any of your posts, you can use the same inline
control on Activity Log to remove any of your searches at any time. It's important to remember that no one else can see your Activity Log, including
your search activity.
So right now it is just you and Facebook... and any law enforcement agencies that write their own warrants or whatever they call them...
Land of the free and home of the brave and all that...
Yes that is the reality of the user, however you must see it from the corporate point of view... They want to make a profit anyway possible, hence how
easy they would sell out to any government,,,,, it isn't working though because they are some how losing money.
How anyone could lose money on a WEBSITE is beyond me....

When you type in any letter of the alphabet in the search bar, the list that pops up under that letter are the profiles that you've either looked at
or that are looking at your profile. Facebook not only records who you stalk apparently, but who stalks you o_0 I find it creepy... www.science20.com...
I resisted facebook like i resisted mobile phones but eventually i opened an account. People think you're weird if you don't have an account.
way way back i remember trying to explain if you wanted me, then call the land line........then it was whats your e-mail, finally whats your Facebook
I had fun for a bit then.........and i have my ex to thank for this, i got out.
She was stalking me via a mutual friend on FB as she wasn't on my friend list, she knew where i was going and what i was doing and eventually couldn't
help herself posting crap about me. Mostly made up of course.
I thought if a technophobe luddite can know everything about me via facebook then so can anyone else, that was the push i needed.
Like any addiction it was hard to give up, i closed my account twice, but a theatre company i was working for used facebook as their own internal
message service. No facebook? no job.
when i stopped using it people actually got annoyed with me like i was making their life more difficult.
