My Dad added me on Facebook!!! Now What???

October 2, 2007

We all know Facebook started out as a college network. We all know that now it is an “everybody” network (to the dismay of many 😦 ). A couple of weeks ago, a friend of mine told me that her mother added her on Facebook. I was amazed. A few days later, my father added me as a friend. Weird, but true. Well, what’s wrong with this anyway? Well, I like to think I have one of those cool dads, so in this case, nothing. But, do you really want everyone to see your party pics? Well, I guess, its a personality thing and therefore the answer is: it depends.

To think, now, things like this are possible:

In any case, Facebook is here to the rescue!

In the next little while, Facebook will announce that you will be able to classify your friends in different categories (i.e. business associates, colleagues, friends, close friends, family, etc…). Each one of the categories will have separate privacy features that will allow you to decide who gets to see what…

Good For Everyone? Not Exactly...

In general, this is good news. A friend of mine, though, was working on a startup company to implement this very feature. Well, Facebook beat him to it. That’s OK though… he has since been spending more time on his other project (which I think is more interesting anyway…).
