Facebook users have noticed their hidden "other" messages en masse and many of them are not happy. Under the Facebook Messages tab there is an "other" tab, which you very well may have never noticed. It hosts the messages Facebook has deemed less important, often meaning messages sent by events or users with whom you have no apparent connection. Though the feature is not new, it has recently caught the attention of many, including a Slate reporter who was messaged by a man who found her lost laptop . Below you will notice where your "other" messages live on Facebook. My inbox has messages from events going back several years.
Facebook subscriptions are about to blow up! At Le Web, Joanna Shields , VP and Managing Director for Facebook Europe, Middle East and Africa (EMEA), announced that the company is planning to roll out a “Subscribe” plugin for all websites. The plugin will allow a website’s visitors a one-click way to begin following all of the news from an individual reporter, public figure, politician, celebrity, or anyone else who wants to post public updates via their Facebook user profile. You may recall that Facebook launched its “subscriptions” feature earlier this fall at its annual f8 conference. The button, available as an optional addition to your Facebook user profile, introduced a Twitter-like functionality to the social networking service. It introduced one-way friendships (at last!)
