    this is not a cool feature. this is one of the features that should be taken off. those picture that i took should not be allow to let anyone download them. So what you are saying it is cool for someone to download your pic that you took your self and anyone can download it with out asking you. then in turn they can also print the photos. doesn’t make sense why this feature is on facebook to start with you. i will also like to add that the pics are being download at high res.

    @ unknow Dude I could also just hit printscreen. And then put it in paint and crop it, the whole point was to make it EASIER to download it. I mean if you dont want people having your pictures, then why are you uploading it to the internet?

    @ unknow yes and did you see that as a security feature(surprised FB has one) you need to accept an email to download you own photos (via the Download all your FB Data)

    1st one: Or I could just message them and ask them what there skype id is….
    2nd one: Yes, now I can stalk Matt Damon like it is Twitter….
    3rd one: or have someone stalk me….(oh and nice for robbers also)
    4th one: another nice for robbers one…
    5th one: Prolly the only cool thing on here, and that is not saying much.
    6th one: Yes, because I never make a backup…

    Why aren’t their any real trackers available for users to see who i viewing their page and how often?? I randomly look for one every week or so and can’t find a reliable one, any suggestions

    And why the bleep do you have people chat conversation sent to their inbox. That’s like making a telephone call and when you finish, it’s been recorded. Now, I have to delete my conversation out of my message box when it should have never been going to my messages. Pick one, either message or chat, they don’t need to work together. I send someone a message, it alerts them I want to chat. No, I don’t want to chat, sometime I just want to send a message and be left alone.

    Umm.. all except the 6th feature is something almost everyone knows…
