Facebook Things

So, Facebook just added a new feature that social networking sites have been lacking for some time: connection descriptions. Most social networking sites have a friendlist or some similar feature which shows that you are connected with someone. But until now, virtually no one has attempted to further define that connection. I tried to do something like this back when I was coding SocialFurs, but I stopped working on that before it really got anywhere.

Facebook has a bunch of different ways to define how you know somebody, and allows you to sort your friends list by those contact methods. This is awesome, and I spent yesterday sorting through memories of people I have listed. It was a lot of fun, and a little nostalgic.

Now if only they would integrate their photo-sharing service with Flickr...
