Facebook's New 'Ask' Feature: Creepier Than Hell! Video!

By Robert Paul Reyes

"Facebook creeping just got a lot harder...or at least more awkward. Gone are the days where you could simply look at someone`s profile to see vitals such as their relationship status and phone number. Now, you have to ask.

In an unannounced update this weekend, Facebook has introduced an "Ask` button to users pages so their friends can ask about their relationship status, where they live, or what their phone number is.

The feature, which has been rolled out incrementally since January, doesn`t allow you to see the button on your own profile. But friends are able to ask about any information you haven`t decided to show, so long as they include a note along with the request."



I can understand why this update was unannounced; it`s creepier than sneaking into Rosie O`Donnell`s bedroom to spy on her as she makes out with an inflatable doll.

This new Facebook feature is proof, as if any more is needed, that Facebook is well on its way to becoming as relevant as MySpace.

If I receive a message from a Facebook friend inquiring about my marital status or where I live, I would respond: Bitc* Please, if you were a real friend you would already know.

Facebook has yet to make any official comment on this new abominable feature.
