Facebook disables stalker apps

Feel free to pester your ex

Social networking giant Facebook announced that it will make short work of applications that supposedly allow users to see who is viewing their profile.

Basically, the outfit claims there is no way such apps can work, as they cannot access private information, so it seems they were just made by blokes who wanted to earn some easy money on paranoia. Users who faced psychos on Facebook might be a bit disappointed to hear this, but such apps don't work and according to Facebook, they never will.

Facebook claims it will still continue to operate an open app system so that more developers can pitch in and contribute to the community. The outfit probably won't follow Apple's footsteps and start vetting apps or removing them because they show a bit cleavage, unless it's got too much cellulite.
