Everyone is now just discovering that Facebook’s new default news stream actually limits access to your friends. Yes, even I was wondering why I saw more updates on my iPhone than I saw on my computer. For what possible reason would FB want to do this? Also, if they haven’t completely disabled the lists capability, they’ve certainly made it less accessible. Why can’t they just make these changes optional? Since you all ride on their train free of charge, they don’t really have to care what you think. They listen only to those who buy all that nice juicy demographic information you provide them. Welcome to the Matrix.

I’ve limited my Facebook friend list to people I see and people I’d wish I could see more often.
