 He then proceeded to show me the new features which include the ability to know everything your friends do at all times whenever they make changes to their facebook profile, such as adding favorite tv shows and movies, or changes in relationship status. This new service also tracks when friends confirm,deny, or attend events, allowing you to basically know where your friends are at all times. All of this wonderful 1984ish functionality is granted thanks to the addition of new “mini-feeds” one such feed is pictured below,

Upcoming additions to facebook include the ability to track your friends heart rates and sucrose intake and the ability to see their grades on every test.
