Facebook Friendship Pages
If you’ve ever yearned to see a history of your friendship with someone on Facebook, I have great news for you! Yesterday, Facebook updated its Friendship pages so now you can see your connections with a Facebook friend on a Timeline page.
Let’s say that you want to check your connections with a Facebook friend. Perhaps you want to see all the pictures you and your best friend have been tagged in together. Or perhaps you want to see how often she purchased your prize-winning petal sachets from your Farmville farm. Or maybe you want to find when your ex-fiance posted his marriage proposal on your wall, which is, after all, why he is your ex-fiance. Facebook now makes that easy to find.
To see your Facebook Friendship page with a friend, go to that friend’s Timeline. Click on the gear icon in the upper right corner of the page and a drop-down menu will appear.
Click on See Friendship and you will be taken to a Timeline page with your shared posts, Liked pages, Groups, Events and photos. You can see the most recent activity that you have in common in the Overview section.
If you want to see each section individually, go to the left column of the Friendship page and choose from the menu. You can see how many Groups, posts, Events, photos mutual friends and Likes you have in common.
You can also check out interactions between two of your Facebook friends. In the right column of the Friendship page, Facebook will suggest common friends for you to check out their Friendship pages. You can also search for any two Facebook friends and Facebook will show you their Friendship page.
If you’re clearing out your Facebook friends and want a quick way to see whether you are interacting with a person or have common interests, this Friendship page feature can be very handy. This Overview gives you an instant view of whether you are truly connecting with someone on Facebook. If you are, you can take a trip down Memory Lane and relive the history that you two have shared together on Facebook. If you aren’t connecting with each other, perhaps it’s time to initiate the conversation with a post (no, a Poke doesn’t count).
Have you discovered Facebook Friendship pages? Have you checked out any friends on your Friendship pages? Have you reached out to any Facebook friends you hadn’t connected with previously? Have you Poked anyone lately? (Please say No to the last question.) Let us know in the Comments section below!
FedEx Ship to Friends App
Just in time for the holidays, FedEx is making it easier for you to ship packages to your Facebook friends. FedEx just launched their FedEx Ship to Friends Facebook app. With this app, you can fill in the information to generate a FedEx shipping label that you can print out and put on your package. The app has a drop-down menu of your Facebook friends so you can fill out the form easily.
You can share the shipping information with your friend on Facebook and include a customized message. When the package arrives, your friend can post that they have received the package (and presumably thank you for your generosity).
