Facebook ‘Ask’ Feature Lets Friends Inquire About Relationships

American VoicesOpinion ISSUE 50•20 May 21, 2014

Facebook has begun rolling out a new profile feature in which an “Ask” button is displayed beside items in a user’s “About” page, including the “Relationship Status” section, so that users can directly ask if their friends have a significant other. What do you think?

  • “You’re not supposed to ask for that kind of information; you’re supposed to deduce it by browsing through hundreds of someone’s personal photos and wall posts.”

  • “Can I still ask my friends about stuff in person, or do I have to use Facebook for everything now?”

  • “This is ridiculous. If people want to know my relationship status, they can just ask me. Or email or text. Or this button thing you’re talking about.”
