Facebook Will Stop Taunting You With Pictures Of Your Ex[

Now, you no longer need to fear being confronted with happier times over morning coffee; Facebook has modified its perniciously insensitive "Photo Memories" box.

The change apparently comes as the result of the complaints of the lovelorn and/or furious — or at any rate, those troubled enough to join the FB group in protest of "Photo Memories." Writing on Inside Facebook (I know! I didn't know about it either!), Facebook Photos Project Manager Sam Odio responded, saying "I'd like to let you know that we're listening to your feedback. The photo memories product no longer shows tagged photos of your friends if you were previously in a relationship with them."


Which doesn't really address the question of "enemies," but hey, it's a start. Because if we want to be tortured with pictures of our exes, we can do that ourselves, thank you very much, Big Brother!
