The other day, I wrote a lighthearted piece about a new feature on Facebook (META) called "People You Might Know," which showed Facebook users profiles of people they were connected to. (One writer I spoke to said, "I’ve been feeling like somehow Facebook knows to recommend the very people whose existence I try to forget.") As of last night People You Might Know appears to have been removed from Facebook. Working out the kinks, or stung by criticism? We’ve contacted Facebook and will post their response if and when we hear back from them.

UPDATE: A Facebook spokesperson emails: "The feature was actually not taken down and should appear on your Home page." And indeed, there it is… Curiouser and curiouser!
