Facebook is far from perfect, but as time goes on Zuckerberg and his crew have introduced the odd tweak here and there to refine our social networking experience and put a stop to those Facebook gripes. Changes are afoot again. This time they're concerned with tagging and select sharing a la Google+ Circles.
When Google+ showed up, flaunting its Circles feature, many a Facebook user looked on, green with envy. Good news – Facebook will soon be equipped with the ability to share posts with select groups using a new drop-down menu system. This means we can finally afford to be a bit more careless in terms of posting content, without worrying what the boss/parents/colleagues will think. It may not be an original idea, but it's certainly a much welcomed one.
There are also plans to tighten security in the realm of tagging. No one wants to be the victim of unflattering photo/video tagging, and now you won't have to be thanks to a new Pending Posts feature. Each time someone tags you in a photo, video or post, you get to stamp it with your approval or rejection and decide whether it makes it onto your wall. Better still, rather than just un-tagging yourself, anything you don't approve can be removed upon request.
Facebook users can look forward to the changes being rolled out over the course of the next few days.
