Facebook is working on a new “stalker button” that will allow you to see all of the updates of a given user. It basically works when you subscribe to a friend which will in turn provide you with all of the juicy goodness in the form of their updates. Think of this as DVR for Facebook! Thank goodness that this feature is currently only in testing mode because we all know how much Facebook really needs another to stalking feature. Here’s what Facebook had to say:
“This feature is being tested with a small percent of users. It lets people subscribe to friends and pages to receive notifications whenever the person they’ve subscribed to updates their status or posts new content (photos, videos, links, or notes).”
As shown in the picture below, you can see that Miss Alison Duckface’s status update shows up on her subscriber’s news feed. Just be mindful when you break up with someone to not forget that they’ve subscribed to your feeds. If this stalking button were to come to fruition, let’s just hope that it will be an opt-in feature and not something jammed down our throats.
