A New Feature That Judge's You For Who You're Friends With
It was announced in August that Facebook filed a patent that allows data from their social network to influence lending decisions for bank applicants. No, I'm not kidding. Remember that girl in high school you spent a summer with partying way too hard? Make sure she makes better life decisions now in the financial department, or you might want to un-friend her.
Facebook added a "Donate Now" button to both ads and pages, making it easier for non-profits to raise money for their cause. #CyberHighFive
You've probably been tagged in a Facebook Note at some point in your life, but it's known knowledge that this hasn't been the sexiest of Facebook features. The company is aiming to give the feature a facelift, providing the ability to link, hashtag, and add photos to send to a customized group of friends. This seems like LinkedIn groups to me, but unlike LinkedIn where everything is business-oriented, Notes can be more of a blogging platform on an array of topics. I'm willing to give this feature a shot before I make a final assessment.
