Facebook Magically Transforms Into Twitter
Why lock yourself down when you can free yourself completely? Who needs arcane wall posts and private messaging when your digital persona can be displayed for all to see?
Facebook took a big fat bite out of Twitter's 140 character-filled book by switching up FB's design last week into a decidely tweet-esque lifestream of large format status updates. Then, on Monday, Mark Zuckerberg's social media monolith took its format-biting a step further by introducing a new privacy option that allows Facebook users to make everything they do available to anyone and everyone at any time.
So much for users' reactionary complaints about their existing lack of privacy on the site, now they can abandon the notion of privacy altogether, in order to spend more time arguing over whether or not there's really any difference between 'friends' and 'followers'.
