All of a sudden, Facebook has been popping up new and controversial tools everyday. The latest addition to the Facebook platform is something called “See Friendship”. It allows a person to click on it and see how the two friends know each other through pictures, events, comments, posts, etc. They snuck this tool in there and it reeks havoc on those who didn’t want everyone knowing how they are affiliated and events they’ve attended. The result of such an invasive tool leaves some people with a lot of ‘splainin’ to do.
Facebook developer, Wayne Kao, launched the “See Friendship” tool because he was inspired by the “joy of browsing through friends’ photos”, according to Time magazine. But looking through pictures is a long way from giving a detailed synopsis of the relationship between two individuals, especially one you don’t even know. Unwelcomed friend requests may even be another residual of the tool because questionable characters out there may be looking to friend your friend and learn even more.
Let’s look at this video to get an idea of just what is happening out there as a result of these “friendly” tools. If you’ve experienced ANY of this, please get rid of your page…NOW!
