If there can be Facebook Question then why can’t be Facebook Quotes!

Few days ago, Facebook has rolled out a feature named Facebook Question as a beta project, which was tested with some user base across the Facebook. Later it has been reported that, Facebook has shut down developing this question feature and removed it from their testing list (I can't confirm it though).

Have a look in the image below. I’m sure you’re quite familiar with this type of notification on your Facebook wall.

It's how it appears!


Facebook’s like feature has become a global phenomena and it has became a habit of Facebook users to like what suits with their mentality, not only pictures, videos or status updates but funny, fruitful and cute Quotes like “I’ve probably learnt more from Google than my School lessons!”  What people do to put and like this kind of Quotes is to like some external 3rd party sites, which opens a backdoor of Facebook Security. These sites actually generate HTML pages titled with that Quotes and generate like button for each individual pages and liking them is actually nothing but sharing that website’s link in Facebook.

Title of that webpage


This link often may contain malicious contents like virus, Trojan blah blah etc, in where not only you but your friends who are interested to like same quote may get infected too by clicking that link!  Moreover these likes appear in Facebook’s newly added Like box on profile, which is very much annoying.

My point of view is why Facebook don’t lunch a small feature for user to add their own quotes and like each others, with options for sharing them privately & globally. Facebook team can also add quotes of famous persons like Sir Abraham Lincoln and see how much people like them in these days too!  If those 3rd party site can do it, then why Facebook can’t! It’ll also increase the security of Facebook users by decreasing external back links. They can add a new box or something else to show the quotes a person liked in his Facebook life time.

Facebook Question may not be a successful addition, but believe me; Facebook Quotes will not go down!
