Friendster fouls up

Friendster did something weird, that a lot of people probably still don't know about.

I found out, oddly enough, via the promising new U Chicago Law blog.

Others can now tell that you have looked at their profile recently.

You have to opt out if you don't like that, via the My Settings menu.

They should have made it opt-in, in my opinion. It didn't really affect me; I'm barely on Friendster anyway, and I can't say I'm sneaking around checking out people whilst they are unawares. But, still. I bet a lot of people got burned.
