With over 900 million users amalgamated in one online carnival, it’s typical to search for someone on Facebook. Have a meeting with someone? Facebook them. Acquaintance? Girl down the hall? Ex-fling? Zuckerberg’s social network is a humongous database of human timelines, and the company just announced that whoever you search going forward will be saved by Facebook.
“It’s important to remember that no one else can see your Activity Log,” Facebook said. So, no, your friend won’t know you were scoping out his sister. You can always delete searches, just as you would a post on your wall, so control is completely in user hands. Just don’t go showing off your searches if you want to keep them between yourself and Facebook only.
The feature is apparently rolling out now, and will continue to do so over the course of the next week or so. I suppose the convenience of this is to recall a person you searched that one time but can’t remember their name — nice of Facebook to give your brain a break.
