Facebook moves toward Networking, away from Random Play
Facebook this week made the blog press when it added “Networking” to “Looking for” on your profile. This move makes sense, as Facebook accommodates its increasingly older, more professional user base.
However, what got less coverage is that for some older users not in college networks, “Random Play” and “Whatever I Can Get” have been removed from “Looking For”. Several older bloggers have commented how the existence of those options makes them uncomfortable with Facebook – looks like Facebook thought it a good idea to clean things up a little.
