When Facebook added their News Feed feauture on Tuesday, the universe that is Facebook dropped off the edge of reality.
The feature was intended to be an automatic update for people on friends lists only, saving them to the time and effort it takes to visit all those profiles to see if anything was new.
Some have hundreds of friends, so this could be useful, giving them news of when there is a party, or somebody broke up with their girlfriend. Big stinkin' deal right?
Yes, apparently. Facebook members revolted, started a petition that collected 600,000 names, and some are calling for a boycott next Tuesday unless their demands are met and their public kind of privacy is returned.
Wow. And I thought I got upset over the least little thing.
