Facebook is Going to Stop Forcing You to Overshare

By Ashley Feinberg on at

After years of inflicting all sorts of obnoxious auto-posts on its users, Facebook is finally heeding their cries. From now on, Facebook will be prioritising only "explicitly shared stories from apps in News Feed." Which sounds an awful lot like something you shouldn't have to say in the first place.

This is counter to pretty much everything Zuck's grand vision for Facebook once consisted of—a world where everything you eat, see, and do is seamlessly and instantly shared across all of Facebook-land without you ever having to lift a finger. [Facebook]
