Today Facebook introduced new options to share things among specific user groups or the public in general. They desperately try to avoid creating the image of having bluntly copied from Google+’s approach, but it simply does not work. Even in the introduction to their list of new features, the reference is obvious.
Today we’re announcing a bunch of improvements that make it easier to share posts, photos, tags and other content with exactly the people you want. You have told us that “who can see this?” could be clearer across Facebook, so we have made changes to make this more visual and straightforward.
