Facebook Ratches Up the Privacy Controls

I know somebody who knows somebody who knows somebody who says that Facebook is about to roll out some new privacy controls soon.
Like in the next day.
Caroline McCarthy's "The Social" blog indicates that the new feature will include the ability to control access to one's profile based on "social proximity" (Think six degrees of separation, a la LinkedIn).
So if I don't know ya directly, I don't have to reveal all my profile information to ya.
There's also talk about an IM client being revealed soon on Facebook.
But wait a minute, didn't AOL just spend $850M on Bebo so that they could link up the power of AOL IM with the reach of the Bebo network???
Well, yeah...but that is so earlier this week!
If you really want to know what's going on with your amigos, you can always revert over to FriendFeed, a "lifestream aggr
Many have suggested FriendFeed is starting to tip, but as RWW points out, it's some serious information overload.
On the other hand, if you thought following your friends' on Twitter was fun, FriendFeed is all about following just about everything your friends are doing online.
Does that include following them as they exclude me from their Facebook privacy controls???
