Facebook has very annoying apps which tags friends in photos and shows up on your wall. You can of course completely disable tagging in photos/videos, but there should be another easier way to get rid of these photos.
Now you can “Remove post and untag…” yourself from a photo on Facebook. When you get tagged in a photo, you can remove yourself from it without having to open the photo itself.
Facebook introduced a new feature a while ago making it easier to post comments on wallpost, photo, status or any other activity. This even allows you to edit your comment on Facebook without having to delete the entire comment.
Usually when you had to edit comments, what did you do? Copied the text, delete the comment and again type it down with the correction you wanted to make. Oh well, this is not needed anymore.
I just wrote on how to get the old Facebook photo viewer back, but that was not a permanent solution to fix it. You would have to do it every time you open a new photo album.
Like I mentioned, it wouldn’t take long for a developer to come out with an add-on or script for Greasemonkey that fixes this – permanently for now. A little Googling helped me find the perfect, permanent solution.
Facebook recently rolled out the new photo viewer “Theater Mode” for all the users, and like ever design change this has been annoying most of the users while some others like it.
The new photo viewer in my view is really bad and the previous one was a lot better, with a cleaner look. This new ‘theater’ look is no better.
Facebook privacy issues has always been a concern for most of the Facebook users. Spammers, fake profiles and stalkers on Facebook is a norm. Today while playing with the new privacy features of Facebook, I came across the option to completely hide my friends list.
Earlier it was very difficult to hide your friends list from some or all of your Facebook friends and public, but now it’s possible.
It seemed to be a very nice feature, but it turned out to be an actual mess at the notifications end. Facebook Groups need some fine tuning of how and to whom notifications will be sent from the start.
This was one feature that was always missing from Facebook. And there was no proper service either to backup your Facebook account (SocialSafe did pop up a while ago).
We all know about the latest Facebook homepage changes that went live a couple of days ago. Lots of people, including me, have been complaining about it since then.
The latest homepage features separate feeds for news feed and live feed. You can switch to whatever you find yourself more comfortable with.
A while ago, Facebook introduced a section of Highlights in its right sidebar which shows the most commented photos, coming events, notes and what others are doing.
Highlights section got a neutral response from everyone. Some liked it, but others found it as an addition to the ever growing clutter on the Facebook homepage.
