Facebook Displaying Number of Friends Who Logged in Recently and Friend Activity
By on June 20th, 2012

Of late, Facebook has been playing around a lot with their interface with improvements of fonts they use as well as the way Facebook photo albums are now displayed.

It looks like Facebook has also started to display the number of friends who have recently logged in to Facebook as spotted by Parth. In addition to that Joel also spotted another update as seen below which shows you an activity of your Facebook friends reading your posts.

The new updates display messages below the post box which include:

xx friends logged in recently

Your friends haven’t seen a post from you for xx days

From the looks of it, Facebook is trying to display some useful bits of information to users, which is probably similar to the reports it displays to “Facebook fan page” owners on engagement and reach on the fan page.

While this feature might not really be useful as of yet, it would be interesting if Facebook also starts displaying the friends who recently logged in along with their activities. In addition to that, it would be interesting to see if Facebook also adds a feature from the social networking site Orkut, which displays the number of people who have visited your profile.

There has been a huge craze in Facebook where users are interested in viewing their recent profile visitors and it has been a major reason behind many Facebook scams out there. It would be good if they have something official out there which does such a thing.

We’ll keep an eye on other interesting updates and post about them as soon as we see them.
