Good Morning, Facebook Users!

Wake up and smell the latest creepy, stalker-esque addition to our favorite social networking site that was already getting pretty creepy and stalker-esque.

Go to your wall. Or anyone’s, for that matter. Find a wall post from a friend. Instead of “See Wall-To-Wall,” we now have “See Friendship”—which encompasses wall posts, tagged photos, events, fan pages, comments, and mutual friends with that person. Hooray, says Facebook:

Friendship Pages will take a lot of the work out of Facebook browsing. Currently, if you wanted to determine the connection between two other people, you would have to sift through all their tagged photos looking for ones with both people, view their wall-to-wall page, and manually compare their friends and Likes. There was no feasible way to see their shared Event RSVPs or comments.

Now there is! It’s nice to think this tool makes easily viewable and accessible the boundless complexities of our relationships with the people we love (or just happen to be Facebook friends with). But a random smattering of Facebook users seems to agree that the change “brings Facebook creeping to a whole new level.”
