Facebook Subtly Nudges Less-Active Users With Friends Logged In, Time Since Last Update

Some Facebook users who have been less active of late are seeing subtle nudges from the social network in the form of messages under their status update forms telling them how many of their friends have logged in recently, or how long it’s been since they’ve posted.

Techie Buzz reported on the messages, noting their similarity to information seen by page administrators on how Facebook users are interacting with their pages.

Readers: Have you seen any similar notices, or are you already an active Facebook user without being nudged by the social network?
