Friendster freaks everyone out

http://www.gawker.com/news/internet/friendster-sells-you-out-128498.php#viewcomments

Gawker reports an appalling new feature on Friendster. Without warning, Friendster now lets you know who has viewed your profile! This means any people whose profiles you viewed know YOU were there.

Ouch. Not that I would ever stalk anyone, but...sometimes one gets curious. CREEPY! No advance notice whatsoever. 12 people have looked at my profile, and I know 3 of them.

You CAN now set your settings to be anonymous when prowling around Friendster, going forward. I did it, and it's working (I stalked, er, tested it on Qaqaq).

And Friendster claims they are in the process of purging all the past views. Let's hope that gets done really fast!
