Got Ideas For Improving Facebook? Post On 'Yo Zuck!'

Irish Web designer Youssef Sarhan came up with an innovative way to share his Facebook improvement ideas with the man at the top of the social network: A Tumblr blog called Yo Zuck! Implement This.

Sarhan’s ideas for Facebook included sneak-a-peek scrolling chat, maps to accompany events, video chat, nested video comments, site-wide online status, drag-and-drop group chat, a Facebook browser bar, and language translation.

Yo Zuck! Implement This apparently got someone’s attention, as Sarhan said in an email to’s Betabeat:

Quite simply, Facebook has been in touch, and I feel that as a gesture of loyalty, I would prefer to keep correspondence exclusive, at least for the moment. I’d prefer to hold out on any interviews for the moment. I hope that you understand, and I’ll be in touch soon.

We wonder whether Facebook’s communication with Yo Zuck! was friendly (like when we got started). If the talk wasn’t of the “cease and desist” variety, then we look forward to seeing Youssef Sarhan around and about.

Readers, what do you think of Sarhan’s blog?
