Did you know you can choose who sees your Facebook updates? Sounds appealing to me. You can now divide your Facebook friends into lists and choose who can see each of your posts. Find out how you can keep your updates private by reading this Mashable article. You’re welcome.
Celtic Inc., a communications company in Brookfield Wisconsin, blogged today about the New Oxford American Dictionary’s 2009 “word of the year” and it’s a social media term: Unfriend. ‘Unfriend’ is defined as a verb which means “to remove somebody as a ‘friend’ from a social networking site like Facebook.
I’m not sure what our society is coming to that the concept of ‘unfriending’ is the word of the year. Here’s my word to the wise: if there’s a chance the person you unfriend will find out that you unfriended them, you might want to just add them to your ‘limited profile’ list or remove their ‘updates’ from your ‘news feed’.
I agree with a couple of these statements. It is pretty strange that one cannot view their most recent ‘status update’ on the ‘home’ page, I had never realized that. I do feel that more, and different, people comment on my ‘status updates’. Since the most recent changes people still made old fashioned, more personal, posts on my ‘wall’ and I miss that.
A couple of the issues this blogger was having have been remedied. There are a lot of filtering options for the ‘newsfeed’, which I appreciate. The column on the right side has more consistent updates that contain an entertaining variety of highlights.
