Facebook just stole one of Myspace’s worst features

Facebook may have just taken a page out of MySpace’s playbook: It’s now testing a creepy feature that broadcasts your friends online activity status right on their profile page. 

Mashable Business reporter Kerry Flynn first noticed the feature and snapped a few shots of the activity status for us. The feature popped up even when she checked out her own profile.

As you’ll notice in the screenshot, the feature shows that friends are either “Active” in bright green letters or gives an estimate of how long it has been since they’ve been on Facebook in grey.
