For a fair while now (maybe since it began) Facebook has had the ability to “like” peoples status updates. This was extended a few months ago to clicking “Like” on fan pages, groups pages, and so on.

Lets face it. Facebook is big and popular. There is always going to the be a competition between social websites to be ‘the” place that people record whats happening in their lives, as part of this competition, websites are going to mimic what each other are doing.

Is this the reason that WordPress now has a “like button”?

Looking for your Facebook Notes, and trying to work out to how to import notes into Facebook?

Sign into Facebook and then go to the following link http://www.facebook.com/notes.php?

Quick tip for people, and possibly quite an important one.

You can control how much information you want people to see on your  Facebook profile Рand what Рyou want to people to see.

Simply sign into your Facebook Profile, and paste the following address into your address bar:

http://www.facebook.com/privacy/?view=profile

This ¬†will take to a screen where you can select what groups of people can view what on your Facebook profile. Remember that you can customise the settings further, so you can bar a few specific people from checking out your photos – if thats the sort thing you want to do…

Are you trying to find the facebook rss feed for your status updates? This is basically so you can update your facebook status, and that will update another webpage. (Example being the lifestream wordpress plugin). Well if you’re anything like me and are stuggling to find out the RSS url check this site out for a step by step guide with screenshots.

Facebook changes privacy policy

Facebook website screen shot

Facebook is one of the world’s most popular social networking sites

Facebook has agreed to make worldwide changes to its privacy policy as a result of negotiations with Canada’s privacy commissioner.

Last month the social network was found to breach Canadian law by holding on to users’ personal data indefinitely.

Facebook has now agreed to make changes to the way it collects and handles this information.

It will also make it clear to users that they have the option of either deactivating or deleting their account.

“These changes mean that the privacy of 200 million Facebook users in Canada and around the world will be far better protected,” said Canadian privacy commissioner Jennifer Stoddart.

“We’re very pleased Facebook has been responsive to our recommendations.”

The decision could also have implications for other social networking websites, she said.

Elliot Schrage, vice president of global communications and public policy at Facebook, said he believed the new policies set “a new standard for the industry”.
