Facebook Quietly Adds a Twitter-Like Follow Feature Last week, Facebook added feature that allowed users to ignore friend requests without rejecting them. It seems, though, that it also acts like Twitter's "follow" feature?the requesting user sees the requested user's statuses, but not the other way around. In a strangely unpublicized move, Facebook has replaced the "Ignore" button with a "Not Now" button in friend requests. This button moves those requests to a state of limbo, in which you can come back to them later and accept or block the user. The ignored user will not be notified, and they can't send you another request while it's in this pending state.
