do people still use faceflop? I lost interest after being swarmed with such groudbreaking posts as "I really want to get a juicer, any suggestions?" and "uggh so stressed today, what to make for dinner?" That's when I knew it was time to delete all of my photos and info. and let my account go dormant (since you can't actually delete your account)

This feature would have more value if facebook allowed you to also "dislike" things. As it is I don't go out of my way to find and "like" a bunch of stuff so they're not going to learn much from me. Over-designing their site will be the death of Facebook

Just another reason to give facebook NO information about yourself. Whenever FB explains the greatness of a new feature you have to ask yourself how this feature is going to benefit FB, not yourself. I use FB but they don't even have my email address or anything else about me personally. WAKE UP FB users. You can still use FB without sharing anything about yourself. Don't 'Like' or 'Share" someone's post. Don't reply to anything that isn't a direct comment from a friend. Don't use Apps. If you're smart you can still get benefit without compromising your personal data.

Until now, Facebook users were unable to search for friends who live in a certain town - if you don't know where your friends live, perhaps they aren't really your friends. I communicate with lots of people online, some I'm friendly with, some are just acquaintances, but I won't consider them friends until I actually know something about them.

So now instead of seeing the post of aunt gertrude's cat once a day I can search for all her cat photos? Amazing, you've done it again mysp...I mean facebook. (sarcasm)

Not very impressive from a query point of view. This thing is basically a big T-SQL statement: SELECT Friends FROM FaceBookFriends WHERE Location = Boston AND Likes IN (Zero Dark Thirty)
