Soon everyone will know what you've looked at on Facebook

Facebook's new "read receipts" will soon tell your friends what you've looked at on the social network. Not ALL things on Facebook will have these little markers – at least, not at first. For now, Facebook is testing this "seen" feature for events. They suggest that you'll be able to "coordinate with guests" based on which of your friends have viewed said event – having little or nothing to do with whether or not they've actually committed one way or the other.

Facebook has begun rolling out this "Seen" or "Viewed" feature for several services, including Facebook Messenger and Facebook Groups. According to the Daily Dot, Facebook confirms that they are "piloting the ability for private event hosts and guests to know whether their friends they invited have seen the event."

This means that not all users will see it, at first. It also means that you might not have access to the feature now or in the future. It might not be released at all.

The "Seen" feature is available in Groups and in Messenger now. So don't act like you didn't see whatever's sent to you. You have no choice.

What do you think of this "Receipts" or "Seen" feature in Facebook? Are you the sort of person that's glad you're able to track whether or not a person has seen your messages and invites? Or are you on the other end of the situation, and not particularly happy that people know when you've seen something they've made, demanding a reply right there on the spot?
