I’ve always had a penchant for finding flaws within supposedly secure systems. Those sort of activities got me into a lot of trouble in high school, and certainly banned from the high school computer lab once or twice. Early last year I decided to join Facebook, and in doing so, I learned an intriguing fact about this fast-growing social network: Facebook profiles are usually private.

I’m sure that this has happened to you before. Someone you have ties to, whether it’s a co-worker, your boss, or even worse, a parent, has finally discovered social networking and wants to be your newest Facebook friend. For me personally, that’s no big deal.

With the new “real time” stream on Facebook’s redesigned home page, Facebook is relying less on its ability to algorithmically select interesting content for users and more on users’ abilities to group and categorize their friends to create the most interesting stream. Here are a couple quick tips for customizing it the new Facebook home page to make it work better for you: 1) Hide friends whose updates you don’t want to see.
Impossible cette semaine de passer à côté de cette annonce majeure : Facebook lancera la semaine prochaine une nouvelle version des profils et pages annonceurs : New Facebook Home Page . Je ne vais pas m’étendre sur la nouvelle page profil car d’autres l’on fait avant moi, je souhaites juste corriger le fait qu’avec cette nouvelle version Facebook ne souhaite pas concurrencer Twitter mais plutôt FriendFeed (cf. With Twitter Envy, Facebook Adds (Near) Real-time Web Capabilities ). Les services de social streaming sont en effet beaucoup plus proches d’un point de vue fonctionnel : agrégation social, commentaire sur les news, fonction d’appréciation “Like”… (lire à ce sujet : Socialstream, vers une hyperprésence des blogueurs ?
