To me, this doesn’t sound like a problem that needs solving. If Facebook users aren’t sharing stuff because they worry it will bore their friends, good! Thank you, people of Facebook, for your restraint in choosing not to bore me.

Wired.com takes a peek at the new look/new features that will be rolled out across the network over the next day or so. If you can see the changes on your homepage already, what do you think?

TechCrunchers are speculating a little. DDoS, domino effect, outlandish coincidence, or something else? Who knows? All I know is that good old IRC and [...]

One feature I really like on Facebook now is that I can create friend-lists and add my FB-Friends to whichever lists I choose, and then when I’m viewing my FB home page I can filter the news feed according to my lists – so I can view just family, or just bloggers, or just comedy [...]
