Hidden Gem In Your Facebook Profile

by | Jan 12, 2011 | Fun Stuff, Useful Tools

Before I get started I wanted to say thanks to Eric Clemens and the rest of the Acroment crew for the very warm welcome.  It’s been awesome so far and I’m very much looking forward to working with Acroment, FastWebUpdates and our clients!

I’m a big social media guy which to my mother means “computer stuff”.  I often try to explain what I do to her and I typically don’t get much past “Internet” before her eyes glaze over (love you Mom).  She recently asked me what “The Facebook” is all about and in my efforts to explain it to her I took a look at my own profile and I stumbled across something I’d never seen before.

If you’re currently Facebooking (is that a word?) then you know that they tend to change things on a pretty regular basis.  One change that they put in with the latest modifications to your profile page is a great little tool called “SEE FRIENDSHIP”.  This link on the right hand side of your friend’s profile gives a you a quick glance of your history with a certain person.  At a glance you can see the following:

  1. How many photos you have been tagged in together
  2. How long you’ve been Facebook friends
  3. Wall posts between the two of you
  4. Events you’ve attended together (or events that you BOTH have attended)
  5. Comment history
  6. Pages you both “like”
  7. Mutual friends

This is an OUTSTANDING resource if you’re looking to cut down on the number of connections you’ve got on Facebook or you’re looking to see how you’ve interacted with an individual.  It’s also just kind of cool to look back at your personal history with one of your friends.  NOTE: One thing that’s NOT here that I’d like to have seen is a chat history with the person.  Perhaps this is something we can look forward to in the next profile change.

And while you’re on Facebook checking this out… why not interact with Acroment!
