Facebook design exploits (not what you think)

Facebook has come out with their new profile layout, which is supposed to help integrate the new relationships feature introduced earlier this year. However, just like when the old profile came out, this one has its flaws. Unfortunately I don’t think they will be corrected this time.

Users have been uploading letters as photos in albums to spell out names or phrases, and then tagging their friends, so the images would spell out a five letter word on their profile page. Take a look at a more extreme but real example below.

I’m guessing this may encourage more people to hide their tagged photos? Great job Facebook at building relationships.
