Friendster made a HUGE goof--you can now see who's been looking at your profile. Of course, we've all been dying to know who's checked us out.
But! We didn't want the flip-side. No, I do not want every single one of my ex-boyfriends to know that I stalk them on a regular friendster basis.
So. The reaction so far? Well, one friend is trying to get Friendster's email so that she can tell them how they've ruined her life.
One coworker is gleefully checking out the ex-boyfriends who have checked her profile. She's also starting to name people who should have, but didn't, check her profile.
And another unnamed coworker spent five minutes shaking back and forth, and is now deleting herself.
Now, there is a way to view profiles anonymously. But too little, too late. What about all the people I looked at before I knew that I would be punished this way?
The only good thing about this is that it doesn't reveal how *many* times I've stalked (I mean...looked at) people.
EDITED TO ADD: I broke the news to *a lot* of people and someone just said cause of me they're going to need a fistful of SSRIs. Wow. Don't blame the messenger, folks!
