The End of Friendster Stalking

The age of using Friendster for its most entertaining purpose- looking up key information about old friends/flames/coworkers and/or future dates- may be coming to an end, because the site has introduced a feature called “Who’s Viewed Me,” which allows viewers to see the last 100 people who have viewed their profile page. True, users can opt out of the feature- but I’d imagine that most people who don’t read their constant Friendster e-mails won’t even know that, and they’ll continue spending hours out of their workdays looking up the current whereabouts of everyone from their 5th-grade class.

I've seen this mentioned in so many blogs that if someone really wanted to continue to stalk unseen, I'd imagine they would know that they need to opt out.
